BLM engine destroyed by fire

Posted on Categories Uncategorized

A Bureau of Land Management engine was destroyed on the Flint Canyon Fire, nine miles southwest of Rockland, Idaho on September 6, 2012. According to a 72-hour report, the engine crew parked the truck along the fireline and then engaged in fire suppression activities below the engine. Later they saw smoke above their location, and upon checking out the source were dismayed to discover that the rear of the engine was engulfed in flames. Eventually the truck became fully involved and was destroyed.
