September 20, 2004 Angels Camp, California --Tuolumne Fire –- Fellow crew members of fallen firefighter Eva Marie Schicke stand at attention after loading her casket onto CDF helicopter 404 for her last flight home. The memorial service was held at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds.  The Tuolumne Fire was a small very fast-moving fire that started around noon on September 12, 2004 near Lumsden Bridge at the bottom of the Tuolumne River.  The fire moved rapidly up the 80-plus-degree slope catching Cal Fire Helitack firefighters, tragically killing firefighter Eva Marie Schicke and injuring five others.
