The Kenai Lake Fire burned north of Kenai Lake on the Seward Ranger District of the Chugach National Forest from June 25 through July 8, 2001. The fire’s size was approximately 3260 acres. This assessment uses the FireFamily+ and RERAP (Rare Event Risk Assessment Process) programs to examine the state of fire danger experienced in late June/early July 2001 in the context of 30 years of historical fire weather and provides probability estimates of the fire reaching various communities in its vicinity in the absence of the fire-ending precipitation event experienced July 4, 2001.
