    For sure! That was somewhere in the John Day Wilderness Area of Oregon.

    Pretty neat area, I was digging fire line and found a mule shoe. Which, of course, I left in place as it could be considered an "artifact".

    On the left.

    The trucks in the background say Bossier City, but that was a call on the interstate in our district where they were paged and arrived first.

    The first reports to 911 indicated that it was in the city. After the city arrived they determined that it was in the parish and we were dispatched.

    It's very common in that area for us to be dispatched into territory covered by the city and vise versa.

    It was a 18-wheeler that had crossed the median on the interstate, hitting 2 cars and killing one of the occupants with a 2nd being flown out. The truck then continued off the road and caught fire (cab and load). Driver was trapped and killed.

    Both my combo and volunteer departments get several nasty 18-wheeler accidents on the interstate every year. It's one of the reasons why my combo department spends so much money and time on large vehicle extrication classes.

    I thought he was being told to go get about two dozen donuts for when the real firefighters were done doing the job he works so hard at avoiding.

    Thanks. I'd like to say that with you it is difficult. But I'd be lying.
