reports three firefighters died in supression efforts on the Esperanza Fire in Riverside County today.
These brave firefighters died protecting someone’s home. My deepest condolences to the families of these heroes.
I understand from watching local L.A. news reports that the fire command pulled engine crews from the fire lines.
KCAL9 News reporting from the scene showed footage shot by a freelance photographer of a CDF Battalion Chief driving through a wall of flames responding to the call of the injured fire crew.
