Grab your life vests! Our fire personnel @ Sacramento NWR (CA) completed a #rxfire via airboat and terra torch – allowing them to reach areas of the wetland that are normally inaccessible. Regular fire in wetlands is vital to promote healthy habitat for wildlife

U.S. Forest Service firefighters managed a prescribed burn in the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge last week.
To access the marsh areas, they had to employ an airboat and a terra torch.
The Forest Service posted this video showing the work under way.
