How The Rim Fire was Conquered

In Fire, Maps

Ever since I was a little boy I’ve loved maps and to this day I keep an abundance of them around the house always ready to be pulled out at the drop of a hat. Check out this interesting map of the Rim Fire. It has all the firelines marked on it which makes it REALLY interesting. You can see the things the fire crews focused on, you can see lines that were cut and overrun by the fire and you can see where the fire is still burning.
