The Matanuska-Susitna Borough government says it’s conducted its damage assessment of the Sockeye Fire zone and plans to meet individually with residents this afternoon (Thursday) to report the state of their property and if their homes are still standing. The sessions will be between 1 and 7 p.m. at the Houston Middle School. The Borough says it will have mental health professionals on site.
