I responded to my first fire yesterday (September 5, 2005). It was just a little smoldering brush fire. My partner and I put it out by spreading the dry, smoking brush out horizontally and covering some of it with dirt. You spread it out horizontally because fire burns upward, vertically, and this helps to mitigate that.

Well, it was only a tiny fire, but it's a first. I'm glad I got to help. Of course, after my 12 hours of volunteer service at the fire station came 6 hours out at the cantinas in Mexicali. [smile] I'm having so much fun doing this; I can't wait to start working for this department.
