BUSH FIREFIGHTER BATTLES BUSHFIRE APPROACHING HOMES IN BLUE MOUNTAINS
WEST OF SYDNEY.
Bush firefighters start a controlled burning around a house in the Blue
Mountains suburb of Woodforde west of Sydney January 4, 2002. A U.S.
helicopter nicknamed Elvis rescued 14 trapped firemen from Australia's
raging bushfires, water bombing flames racing towards them and saving
them from becoming the first fatalities of the 12-day crisis.
