Wild Art, October 2005

U.S. Forest Service firefighters keep an eye on the rising smoke from the Thurman fire Friday along Highway 38 in the San Bernardino National Forest, Calif. Nearly 2,800 firefighters from agencies throughout the state were on the lines, aided by six retardant bombers and 11 water-dropping helicopters. Hundreds of people were allowed to return home Friday as firefighters gained ground against the 20,000-acre wildfire. The blaze on the Los Angeles-Ventura county line was 20 percent contained and was expected to be 35 percent surrounded by day's end, said Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Mike Bryant.
