Fortuna Fire Crew Battles Flames to Protect Homes

Corpsmembers on the Fortuna 1 Type 2 hand crew hike along the fire line as they work to protect homes from the Zogg Fire near Igo, CA.

Flames burning on all sides. Three homes sitting in their path.

Armed with hand tools—and assisted by engines—the Corpsmembers of CCC Fortuna 1 stepped into the action last week on the Zogg Fire in Shasta and Tehama counties.

Through intense heat, and in steep terrain, these Corpsmembers cut fire breaks and cleared debris, helped fight fire with fire and were rewarded with knowing they made a difference and helped a community.
