first_imgIn the south, crews are building a guard west of the Tommy Lakes Road, and employing direct attack on the southeast flank. On the southwest flank, they are also installing sprinklers on the South Nig Road guard in preparation for possible controlled ignitions. MacAuley said that while the fire did cross the CN Rail tracks along its southeast edge, crews have found that the rail line itself was undamaged in the fire.

According to MacAuley, there are now 190 firefighters, 9 helicopters, and 18 pieces of heavy equipment working to battle the flames, and crews are currently working to protect oil and gas infrastructure, as well as a small farming community near the fire’s eastern flank. On the fires northern flank, crews are continuing to build fireline east of Tommy Lakes road and along North Nig road.

And his oratory skills were on full display at a San Diego shipyard: “My philosophy is very simple,” he said.“It’s in keeping with the dream of America, if you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation to stand up, say something speak up and speak out. We’re one people, one family, not just American family, but world family.”When not in front of the camera, the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-Award winning Woodard has been a tireless advocate for human rights. So it was only appropriate that she be the ship’s sponsor.
