Driving into the Indians Fire.
The brush was so tall and thick (Even in the burn), we had to cut tunnels (P-line) to move ahead of other hotshot crews to fine the fires edge and start cutting line. This procedure is know as "Leap Frog". As one crew ties into another crews handline, they take a leap ahead of that crew to start a new piece of handline.
Each day the fire seem to blow-up at the heat of the day.
