Work Life: Fire behavior analyst

Firefighters keep watch as flames burn through trees near Fawnskin, Calif. on Sept. 18, 2007.

Lisa Napoli: We aired this next story just a month and half ago.

Back then, firefighters were getting a big Southern California fire under control and as we all know, that was a temporary reprieve.

We thought this a fitting time to revisit this "Day in the Work Life" of a fire behavior specialist. He spent this week helping battle this latest round of blazes. At the time, we found him on the job in Idaho.


Napoli: A Day in the Work Life was reported by Elizabeth Wynne Johnson.
