Firefighters Prepare for Wildfires

(Story written by Rosemary Reynolds)

MOLALLA, Ore. – Fire fighters from several jurisdictions gathered in Molalla Friday to set a forest burn.

The idea is to train for wildfires ahead of the season.

Drones have been introduced. They are used because they can get eyes on the depth of big fires.

The Oregon National Guard flew a helicopter in to train with firefighters.
