    I think we are over due for some of the large (at least in this part of the country) brush fires.

    Dal:

    The chief sent all the media to me-he did the interview for a fire we had a couple of weeks ago. The first engine had a 2 acre grass fire and almost had it knocked down with back pack pumps. They ran out of water and the wind picked up. Total of 43 acres and it burned to the back of several homes under construction. We did a tanker shuttle (tender to the west coast folks) and believe it or not, it was the first time we have drafted at a fire in the 24 years I have been on the FD.
