Fire crew camp

Crews working the fire slept in tents near the burn area so they wouldn't have to spend time traveling. The helicopter pilot and fuel truck were located out of the trailer. "These prescribed fires give us a chance to put our people in the situation so they know what to expect and how to deal with it," said T.J. Hunt, Sublette County Deputy Fire Warden. "We use these fires to train our future fire folks. Our big thing is mostly wildland fire suppression. More people are moving into the wildland urban interface."
