ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - The Anchorage Fire Department sent five units to respond to a campfire that had escaped into nearby trees near Mulcahy Stadium.

According to a spokesperson for AFD, the fire began in a ten to fifteen foot camp circle that was supervised by "folks that live in that area."

It escaped to a few nearby trees, but the Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire.

All forms of burning are currently banned within the Municipality as well as the rest of Southcentral Alaska.
