Summary
A wildfire rages in a forest, lighting up the tall pines with bright orange flames. The wind whips the fire. It burns 60 acres (24 hectares)about the size of 45 football fields every minute! The giant wildfire is much too large for firefighters to extinguish with their water hoses. This is a job for specially trained wildfire firefighters called "hotshots." These dramatic, true stories will keep readers turning the pages as they learn firsthand how these brave, tough, firefighters use their strength, quick thinking, and expert skills to battle deadly blazes. Also, readers will go behind the scenes to learn how "hotshots" train for their job so that they are ready to spring into action at a moments notice
