Here are some pictures taken at the Eagle fire in San Diego County, which burned between Warner Springs and Borrego Springs, California. All of these photos are from the CalFire Flickr page. All three of these photos were taken by Kevin Pack, CalFire VIP photographer. There were no captions on the photos that described exactly what was taking place, so I made up my own. However, the dates the photos were taken are available. Most of these photos were uploaded to Flickr on July 31, 2011. The fire was contained after burning 14,100 acres.

What is missing in the photo above? There are no flip chart easels, or maps or agendas taped to the walls. How can you have a meeting of fire overhead without that stuff? Maybe it’s a religious service.
