Battling California fires, inmates find a chance at better role
"We can be going from one fire to another driving down the highway, and people pull up just saying 'thank you' ... Even though I have to wear these colors, I still feel important."
- Anthony Candido, prison inmate/firefighter
Big Sur, California, USA - The fire whirl came spinning up the steep slopes of Big Sur like a dust devil of flame.
For the prisoners, firefighting fosters new growth in their character, like Sequoia seeds loosed by wildfire.
