Fire season is coming fast upon us. Up and down the state firefighting agencies are busy preparing for a year that could be one of the worst --- as drought continues to cripple the state. KRCB recently spent a day with a group of elite wildland fire fighters to learn what goes into getting ready for fire season. 

The crew lines up to get their picture taken.
