CACHE CREEK REGIONAL PARK, Calif. -- This was a mission about quickness for the California Army National Guard's 132nd Multirole Bridge Company.


First, there was the Pawnee Fire that erupted late June in Lake County, California, that scorched more than 15,000 acres. Then the Spring 2 Fire ignited a few days later, but that was extinguished after a modest 80 acres burned. Yet the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or CAL FIRE, stayed busy immediately as the County fire erupted in Napa and Yolo counties, and needed to move its assets quickly to fight the latest blaze.
