September 14, 1990 Tuolumne City, California -- Cottonwood Fire -- Stanislaus Hotshot Foreman Curt Larue gives order to ignite underbrush along Mount Provo Road, stealing fuel from the advancing forest fire. 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.
