Fort Carson Soldiers, assigned to 52nd and 4th Engineer Battalions, assist efforts to contain the Waldo Canyon Fire at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. The engineers used bulldozers and support vehicles to create strips of cleared earth called firebreaks, ranging from eight to 100-feet wide, to stop the wildfire's progress.
