Mat-Su Borough officials to announce buildings destroyed in McKinley Fire
It's an announcement that may be hard to hear. On Friday, Mat-Su residents will learn whether their homes burned in the McKinley Fire.
A post Thursday afternoon on the Matanuska-Susitna Borough website asked anyone whose property is located in the current fire perimeter to meet at either the Upper Susitna Senior Center or the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Officials will announce whose homes survived the fire and whose did not.
People are asked to bring a form of identification, like a driver's license or utility bill, for the property they are inquiring about.
The borough said counselors will be on site for those in need.
Borough officials have been surveying the damage in areas that are still deemed unsafe for people to return. A report on the total damage caused by the fire is also expected Friday.
