Iowan Shares Experience Helping With California Wildfires
GRIMES, Iowa -- Ryan Kooiker is back home after spending time in California assisting in the battle against wildfires. "You get 20 guys together. You have to grit it out for 19 days - hiking mountains, camping in the dirt, dust and nastiness...getting gritty," Kooiker said. Now, Kooiker doesn't mind getting dirty. But, this certainly was not your average camping trip.
