Chipping Operations on June 16

A daytime photo of seven firefighters in yellow shirts and hard hats stand on a road holding clumps of tree limbs as tall as a person, ready to be placed in a chipper. Pine trees of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest are in the background. Image options: [ Full Size ]

Firefighters feed limbs trimmed from the east side of Highway 191 into a chipper which places the material on the west side of the road. By burning out from the road, firefighters can create a buffer to prevent the fire from crossing the highway.
