September 15, 1990 Tuolumne City, California -- Cottonwood Fire -- Stanislaus Hotshot firefighter Dave Henson moves quickly through the heavy smoke after he stopped a spot fire that jumped the line. The Cottonwood Fire was held to 2,000 acres by the fast action of fire crews.  The fire threatened several small communities. The big challenge was to make sure the fire didn’t get past the Hacienda fuel break, keeping the fire out of the Tuolumne River.
