Thirtymile Turns Ten

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of when 14 members of the Northwest Regular Crew #6, along with two civilians, were entrapped by the flames of the Thirtymile Fire in the Chewuch River Canyon on the Okanogan/Wenatchee National Forest in Washington state. Four of those entrapped lost their lives in the line of duty. We remember Tom Craven, Devin Weaver, Jessica Johnson, and Karen Fitzpatrick.

Take a moment to review the incident and observe lessons learned from this tragedy.
