"Be a student of fire." That's just part of the advice that Colorado's first all-female wildland fire crew received at a training camp in late May. This summer, the women will work on conservation projects and help fight forest fires in the area around Grand Junction.  KVNF spoke to several of the crew members, their instructors, and a couple of longtime female firefighters.
