Rum Creek Fire's incident command says an unexpected rescue happened at the Incident Command Post (ICP) this week. It says as fire suppression operations slow, its remaining crews are vigilant about their duty, such as Operations Section Chief Jesse Blair. It says yesterday while Blair was leaving the ICP, he noticed a white bird in a tree, and as he drove closer he noticed it seemed to have trouble flying, becoming grounded. Incident Command (IC) says when Blair got out of his vehicle the white bird ran away rather than trying to fly, and when close enough to clearly see the bird, Blair identified it as an albino Red Tailed Hawk that was wet and unable to fly.
