Another such event is covered in Mark Matthew's fine book: A GREAT DAY TO FIGHT FIRE: MANN GULCH, 1949. Nineteen firefighters died there as well.

Oh, I LOVED that book... Someone gave me a copy when I passed the PAT for our local department back home! Almost scared myself out of a job!

Thank you for your dedicated service! The politicians who want to cut pay and benefits for Union firefighters, nurses and teachers should have to serve a mile in your shoes.
