September 15, 1990 Tuolumne City, California -- Cottonwood Fire -- Stanislaus Hotshot foreman Joe Molhoek walks around truck that was painted with retardant. 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.
