this is newswatch 12 this morning"ad lib about co all say they are happy to be here, but they are working extremely hard. one firefighter i talked to yesterday... mike calhoun from fire district 3...described their schedule. for the strike team leaders...they get up at 4-30 in the morning. they then get their team up and fed...and then head out to their assignment for that day. he says they're out there until the next morning since they're on 24 hour shifts. they're used to 48 hour shifts back home ...but there they at least get some downtime. here, it's all really hard work. [e12]rachel camp fire-sotvo "the motivating factor right now is that the guys on those the goals for these people to repopulate the community and so before they can do there's chainsaws going all the time so before folks can come in and start sifting to at ashes to find anything that's left thats salvageable we have to move those hazards" these guys got here on monday....and are expecting to be here for a 14 day shift. that could change to 21 if fire conditions worsen. today i'm tagging along with odf and fire marshal teams as they search buildings. i'll bring you that update tonight on newswatch 12 at 11. live in paradise, ca, rachel tiede nw 12. if
