Firefighters. Two firefighters use a chainsaw to fell a tree. They are removing trees and other combustible matter to create a firebreak that will halt the spread of the forest fire. These firefighters are part of an elite crew of US firefighters known as 'hotshots'. They respond to fires rapidly and employ a variety of ground and air techniques to manage forest fires. Photographed in 2002 at Glenwood Springs, Colorado, USA.
