#77, Fire At The Old Mining Claim

This is my first attempt to post a video recording for one of my stories. It was an impromptu effort so please give feedback. My friend John and I went for a little 4 wheeling trip north of Phoenix and when we drove past a small side road that led to an old mining claim, I told him a story about a fire that occurred back in 1976 when I was working there. A few minutes later when we stopped to enjoy the views, John whipped out his phone and said to me, “tell the story that you just told me about the fire at the mine”.

No deep lessons here. No big leadership tutorial. Just an old retired firefighter reminiscing about a fire 45 years ago. Please leave a comment and let me know if you prefer the audio or video stories. Thanks for listening.

  1. Good stuff, Bobbie! Reminds me of one of my first ‘large’ fire assignments – Kingston, NM on the Gila NF, 1974. Exploding stuff all around this old mining town – and I was nervous enough to start with!
