You are a fi refi ghter battling a big blaze. Whoosh! A chunk of


flaming wood lands at your feet. You cover the flames with soil to stamp out the fire. You look up. Above you, flames


light up tall trees. T e fire is moving closer to you. You can see flames leaping from tree to tree. Your squad leader shouts, “Run! Get to the escape route. NOW!” You grab your gear and run. T e


roar of the blaze fills the air. Sparks whistle past you. T e heat builds. You dare to look back. T e place


where you were is covered in flames! T at was a close call. For now, you and your crew are safe.
