Gretchen Woodland, the lieutenant who serves as the Vocational Works Projects coordinator at South Idaho Correctional Institution, sent us photos of the 3-9 crew in action last month while battling the Bull Fire near Cascade.

"They were flown into that fire and stayed on it for eight days. They’re crew performance rating was very good." Woodland says.
