Meanwhile, a pair of fire experts have been called in to help with the major California fires. Phil Perkins of Bozeman will be serving as an operations chief for the Angeles Forest and will also help develop suppression tactics and methods for daily fire missions. He'll be joined by West Yellowstone smoke jumper Hardy Bromegie, who's headed to San Diego to work as a division fire chief directing crews on fires near that city.
