Helicopter crews managed to haul 38,000 pounds of hoses, pipes, generators and other structure protection equipment no longer needed on the Shovel Creek Fire line. Air Operations Branch Director Nate Alexander explains how teams in the air and on the ground are helping remove all the gear so it can be refurbished and sent back out to other fires.
