Have you seen the horrific pictures from California? The fires have already killed 7 people, and have forced massive evacuations. Entire towns are GONE and hundreds of thousands of acres have been destroyed. These are the worst wildfires in California history. And right in the middle of it all are some of our heroic Maine Forest Rangers.

From the MFR Facebook page:

Thanks to all the brave men and women from Maine who are out there and sending back these photos on social media. The Maine Forest Service wrote on Facebook, "We are proud to be helping out another state and to be representing our department, the Great State Of Maine and her people. We will keep you updated as time goes on and we appreciate your well wishes."
