Indians Fire Entrapment, 6/11/08

The Accident Prevention Analysis Report of the burn-over of 4 firefights of Engine 71 on June 11, 2008 during the Indians Fire on Los Padres National Forest has been released. It is a lengthy report, and I cannot reproduce it here in its entirety, but you can read it here:

The story portion of the report is fascinating reading and includes maps, photos, and well as depictions. Anyone interested in how this came about, will find this interesting reading. Three of the 4 firefighters were burned. One remained in the hospital for a week. All were lucky.
