Santa Fe Fire

Went out today to cover the Santa Fe brush fire in Bradford Country, today with my friend Andrew Stanfill, the fire is abot 25% under control and so far has burned about 5,000 acres of land. Luck was on our side today, as we had no idea where to actually go to find where we could go, but happened to stumble upon a dirt road where a tv crew from jacksonville was waiting for the press information officer. After waiting for about 15 minutes, we were taken in by SUV to the fire line that the forestry department had created. Overhead was lone Huey helicopter dropping buckets of water on the fire and multiple bulldozers trying to clear out all of the brush. Forestry workers were busy lighting dead shrubs on fire in an effort to starve the advancing flames of fuel and to prevent it from jumping the fire lines.
