It is wildfire season, boo!

It is wildfire season, boo!

Last night N got sent out to cover breaking news. He drove out to the fire that started out near Tusayan and The Grand Canyon about an hour before he was supposed to get off work.

He phoned in for the 10 pm news (they didn’t have a camera or a way to transmit video), he did his report and then drove back home. They headed back out to the wildfire today and are staying the night (and possibly more nights if deemed news worthy). This morning he left the house in this snazzy looking fire suit.

Notice how the pants are a lovely olive green and the shirt is like mustard yellow, stylish huh?

If you are interested in seeing his work online let me know in a comment and I’ll send a link your way!

Hopefully all the buildings and people near the fire remain safe and unharmed. Wildfires can be devastating and very sad to witness. I remember when state route 89A out of Sedona was closed due to a wildfire. I worked at a resort miles from the scene, we were all just shocked and devastated.

  • I’m from Eastern Oregon and wild fire-fighting is huge over there as a job for the young people.
    I think that home birth would be nice. It isn’t too wild at all. I think water birth is also really nice!

  • I would love a link to his work at the X fire! Why are they calling it the X fire anyway? Is it at a crossroad? Thanks

  • Oh – I am glad that he so “gaily” dressed so that he is easily seen….

  • Wild fires are terrible. I hope that they don’t end up too bad.

  • We’re having a lot of fires, too. It’s just too early for them to be this bad already! I hate it. I hope Nathan gets home soon.
