Someone called 911 about 7:50 a.m. to report the fire on Snow View Drive, east of Lake Otis Boulevard and south of 72nd Avenue, a fire department dispatcher said. A total of 14 fire units rushed to the burning duplex and the fire was under control sometime before 8:30 a.m., the dispatcher said. Firefighters at the scene continued to mop up afterward.

According to the Red Cross of Alaska, the fire displaced a four-person family, which made other housing arrangements.
