Fairchild stages Washington National Guard Blackhawks to fight wildfires

Two Washington National Guard Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters launched from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, to Fairchild AFB to fight the wildfire dubbed “The Sheep Creek Fire,” Aug. 1, 2018. WNG efforts are currently focused on keeping the fire south of Sheep Creek, located north of Colville National Forest near the United States-Canadian border. Five 20-member local fire-fighting hand crews are already deployed fighting the fire, very soon to be aided by the WNG and its citizen soldiers. (U.S. Air National Guard photo/Tech. Sgt.
