Fire Rangers

BC Fire

Fire Ranger – Deployment to B.C.                                                                                                            

rattling road for the Heavy Duty 350

and a torrent of rain coming down

hard enough to end the work day

Red Deer Creek Fire, B.C.

& we’re all wanting Fire

Fire blazing and overtime, adrenaline.

Choppers roaring in the sky above

and the great reaction of fire

taking a rip to glory

with a fierceness, perfected, defined

animal

a she wolf of angry consumption

Tearing through 60 foot Lodgepole Pine

Spruce,

Smoke filling the sky

Wildfire smell in the air

Danger

here the tool is king

attack of Pulaski, Shovel & Caterpillar line

soft blue mountain ranges distant

framed in by conifers & smoke haze like memories
