Little Tujunga Hotshots

The Little Tujunga Hotshots, a Type 1 Interagency Hotshot Crew, the U.S. Forest Service’s most trained, skilled and experienced type of handcrew, is assisting Cherokee National Forest’s Unaka Ranger District as drought conditions persist, increasing the fire danger. The crew, from the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, Calif., is accustomed to fire-prone conditions with temperatures in the 90s to 100s and fast-moving brush fires.
