Hotshots

From the Series Common Core 5-6 Starter Set

A wildfire rages in a forest, lighting up the tall pines with bright orange flames. As the wind whips the fire, it burns 60 acres (24 hectares)--about the size of 45 football fields--every minute! The giant wildfire is much too large for firefighters to extinguish with water hoses. This is a job for specially trained wildfire firefighters called hotshots. Dramatic, true stories will keep readers turning the pages as they learn firsthand how these tough, brave firefighters use their strength, quick thinking, and expert skills to battle deadly blazes. In addition, readers will go behind the scenes to learn how hotshots train for their job so that they are ready to spring into action at a moment's notice.
