Hotshots gear up for Monument Fire
Fire fighters are ready to go when called
Ironwood Hotshot firefighter Anthony Lopez replaces the chain on a chainsaw last week. The crack firefighting team were in Tucson for a short time between fighting a fire in Carlsbad, NM, and heading to the Monument Fire near Sierra Vista.
During a break between fires around the country, Leilani Robinson’s files the tips of her ax last week at a Northwest Fire District’s Wildland Operations Center. This is Robinson’s first year serving as an Ironwood Hotshot firefighter.
