Incredible story of helicopter pilot saving 12 firefighters who had deployed their fire shelters while fighting the King fire here in California. I am thankful that they were saved and that the fire is at 89% containment. I know those woods and have used Fresh Pond as a meeting place for years. Had those firefighters been lost, I do not know if I’d ever be able to enjoy those woods again without carrying the sadness of what they’d sacrificed. Thankful. Godspeed, hotshots and special thanks to those who support them from the air and on land.
