Video from the Gladiator fireline

This video has some good shots from the fireline on the Gladiator Fire in Arizona.

It was shot by Rick Servatius of Bay6 Productions out of Scottsdale, Arizona who has a standing call when needed contract with the Bureau of Land Management to produce videos. The Gladiator fire hired the company under that existing contract to shoot high-definition video at the fire. Ken Frederic of the BLM at Boise told Wildfire Today that he thought the estimated cost was about $4,000 for the five days of shooting, May 17-21, including the post-production tasks. It was Mr. Servatius who uploaded the video to YouTube, not the BLM or the folks at the Gladiator fire.

Here is the description as it appears on YouTube:

This is footage from the fire line at the Gladiator Fire outside of Crown King, AZ. I am a trained fire fighter who carries a camera rather than a shovel and was the only videographer allowed to be on the fire line. I was assigned to the fire for 5 days to shoot footage. At night I would feed this footage to NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and all the other major networks.
