Driving Home, Service Fire Crew Comes Across and Helps Fight Five Small Fires
June 14, 2018
A Service fire crew from San Luis National Wildlife Refuge Complex in California was traveling home from a three-day “skills and drills” workshop last week when the firefighters encountered not one but five vegetation fires burning in the median of Interstate 5 just outside Maxwell, California. The crew—including two new seasonal firefighters—sprang into action. Working with local firefighters, they soon put the fires out.
