Still defending flare ups from the megafire’s aftermath, a scout group breaks.
12 men started the fight, all “brothers” from a headland community isolated by three sides of the Pacific coast and the highway that follows it. The gully’s are loaded with overgrown fuel and resources stretched thin by a hellacious fire like never seen before, this crew was left w no choice but to defend the families that go back generations.
With 24 homes already in flames, some their own, and shovels to stop the spread. These first time hot shots spent the next 96 hrs w a growing army that not only saved the memories in those homes, they saved a community for those less fortunate to want to rebuild in it.
There are too many stories to share for now and this is just one of thousands in the wake of a states two ongoing megafires, our hearts go out to those left exhausted and homeless, so many with just the clothes on their back.
