Here is his truck getting pulled out of the water last night. The trailer is basically made of solid steel ibeams. Really no chance, straight to the bottom 60 feet.
It's funny how the news cycles work. First it was the IRS scandal. Then the NSA guy, now these poor firemen get their time. I hate to say it, but why not just let wildfires burn in the wild. It's one thing to take a stand in homes and neighborhoods, but in the wilds? Seems like an unnecessary risk. Feel bad for the wives and especially the small children.
