When you fight a fire in California, you have to be mindful of the Santa Ana winds. If you fight a fire in Texas, it will probably be a grass blaze, which travels fast compared to a timber fire the likes of which we might see in Colorado. Of course, it takes years of experience on the ground fighting fires to fully grasp how to address each diverse environment.

“In every part of the country you have to approach fire suppression differently,” explains Rick Barton, who has been fighting fires for more than 45 years, traveling from his home in the Gunnison Valley.
