Fire, Fires

Apr 23, 2002

Joel called to let me know he’s passed his initial hunting training and safety course. Soon he’ll take the Pennsylvania test to get a hunting license, and in the Fall he’ll be out in the woods looking for a big buck to fell. As long as he doesn’t take up membership with the National Rifle Association …

Nick called, with a tired voice. He’s working days as a firefighter with the Forest Service and nights as a beer vendor at the Arizona Diamondbacks games. Last week his engine company was called to a fire near a residential area. The fire was out in minutes, he says, but the cleanup and monitoring of the charred field took hours.
