Crews make quick work of fire rehab

About 400 acres within Castle Rock Fire perimeter treated to prevent erosion, landslides

A heavy-lift K-Max helicopter owned and operated by Mountain West Helicopters of Alpine, Utah, lifts off with a several-thousand-pound load of straw on its way to a burned hillside inside the Castle Rock Fire burn area last Sunday. The private contractor was hired by the U.S. Forest Service to treat about 400 acres prone to landslides with a mixture of straw and woody mulch. Inset: The load is dropped from the sky.
