"Teamwork, guys!" volunteer Clements Firefighter Kurt Rhoades
called to several firefighters Thursday as they unrolled a hose and
began attacking a brush fire off Clements Road.
Despite a setback -- when the crew left a couple of so-called
hot spots behind, which flared up and damaged the hose when the
wind suddenly shifted -- they soon conquered the blaze.
