A little rain and a big miracle and the hills are starting to green up. Looking at things after the fact and the smoke settled there were places that some tremendous stops were made by the firefighters. There are some unsung hero’s however, The ranchers and farmers that risked thousands of dollars of equipment and risk to themselves to disk fire breaks that made a huge difference. There were also road grader operators that worked at building fire breaks. Only one got on the news down in OK when he had to abandon his. He got back on the machine with minor damage and went right back to fighting fire. There are going to be stories coming out of this fire for years.
