Pretty amazing photo. Firefighters only deploy their shelters when its really dire b/c its truly a last option. Its either shelter or burn alive. Incredible to see a photo of this. Gotta say. Western firefighters are the best. They have so much to deal with and its crazy dangerous and exhausting. Heroic stuff.
Make sure you check out The Los Angeles Times website for coverage. They are working toward another Pulitzer and it shows.
