Kids Encyclopedia Facts

There are four islands named Fire Island in the U.S. state of Alaska.

Different Islands

In the Kashevarof Passage

One is 0.1 miles (0.16 km) long (160 m) and located in Kashevarof Passage, off the north coast of Prince of Wales Island, at 56°14′03″N 133°03′23″W / 56.23417°N 133.05639°W / 56.23417; -133.05639.

Bogoslof Island

Another Fire Island is in the eastern Aleutian Islands at 53°56′40″N 168°02′51″W / 53.94444°N 168.04750°W / 53.94444; -168.04750 near Bogoslof Island.

Anchorage

A third Fire Island is in Cook Inlet, just off Anchorage, the largest and most well known of all of them.

Denali Park Chalet The small island on the Nenana River located on the border of Denali National Park and the Chalets hotel area was also known as Fire Island. This is because of its smaller scale resemblance to Anchorage's Fire Island, as well as the fact that the employees of the chalet use the island to host occasional fires. This was before employees were not allowed to live at the Chalets (which changed after the summer of 2013).
