On May 19th 2014 the Funny River fire started on the western side of Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Over the next five days the fire grew to nearly 200,000 acres, burning four structures and two outbuildings. There were also thousands of homes in the direct path of the fire. Pre-constructed fuelbreaks provided an opportunity for firefighters to successfully defend them.
