Arizona Firefighters

2013.06.30 Sunday night 19 Arizona Elite "Hotshot" firefighters of Granite Mountain based in Prescott AZ  lost their lives after deploying emergency fire shelters that failed to protect them.
This event drives it home for me, early summers in AZ are hot and dry so from here on out I pledge not to use Alcohol, or Bio-mass fuels (aka sticks off the ground) until the monsoon season and a reasonable amount of rainfall occurs. regardless that this fire was the result of lightning strike I will go Iso butane.
I mourn the loss of these fine protectors of my beloved wilderness, RIP
