There is little time!
In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for the thick black smoke to fill a house. In minutes, a house can be engulfed in flames. If you wake up to a fire, you won't have time to grab valuables because fire spreads too quickly and the smoke is too thick. There is only time to escape.
Alaska has experienced 11 fire-related deaths since January 2023 and 23 in 2022. Check out the State's Department of Public Safety, Fire and Life Safety page for more information
