The army landed at the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) in Boise last
week & was put on busses to go to the Oregon fires. Hadn't heard anything
yet about Aussies. Years ago I worked at NIFC, only then it was Boise IFC,
glad I'm not working there now. When they have fire busts like this year,
you're practically working around the clock.
