High Park Fire Update: Hugh Carson
Hugh Carson is the deputy air operations branch director on the High Park Fire, and also a KVNF DJ. Carson is responsible for aviation assets, strategy and tactics on this fire. KVNF’s Ariana Brocious spoke with Carson yesterday about his operations so far.
For those who aren’t aware, in 1994 the lightning-sparked Wake fire burned more than 3800 acres of pinion-juniper about four miles northeast of Hotchkiss.
