#Welcomehome #MRCAFirefighters from #NorthernCalifornia led by Chief Nelson. The nine day assignment on the #MendocinoLakeComplex took them on steep terrain through thick forest, cold temperatures, and the devastated communities. It was an experience they will never forget.

Ten years ago today Southern California was on fire. The Witch Creek and Cedar fires were the largest and most destructive in San Diego County but I was assigned to photograph the Rice Canyon fire at the north end of the county line. This fire burned almost 10,000 acres and destroyed 248 structures, it also caused the I-15 freeway to be shut down. During my three days covering the fire, I saw an entire mobile home park destroyed, people rushing to save whatever they could from their homes as flames crept closer and closer, and countless fire personal doing everything they could to save lives and property. This image was taken on the backside of a home that was sitting on a hill top. This water dropping helicopter and other air support saved this home, because it, the fire personal and myself had become surrounded by the fire and without the air support there was no way the flames would have not destroyed the home.

A firefighter in Chewelah, Washington prepares to fight a brush fire while wearing his structure fire gear. Winds of over 30 miles per hour complicated the efforts back on Tuesday, quickly spreading after a house burned down. #fire #firefighter #wildfire
