This picture can be used in lieu of a fireplace!
Dozers are another way to cut line in front of a fire. Heavy equipment plays a key role in containing large fires but due to logistics issues, it usually arrives after the fire is well established. So when these guys get there, they usually have a BIG fire to fight. I never got closer than a half mile to the fire but there were times when I could feel the heat even from that distance. How Warren and this operator are coping with it from this close is beyond me!
