A severe fire burned more than two acres of land at Flamingo’s North Ridge on Jan. 16. High winds caused the flames to burn hard and fast. Vacationing firefighter and smoke jumper Jim Dibert from the U.S. state of Alaska helped contain the fire and keep it under control, assisted by his longtime girlfriend, Stephanie Miller, and several locals. Many thanks for your hard work, and for helping to save homes!
