Soldiers with Company A, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, combined with Afghan National Army soldiers work to put out a fire in the Yahya Khel District bazaar, in Paktika province, Afghanistan, June 22. As locals fled, combined security forces arrived to help, removing flammable items from the area, digging a trench to contain the fire, caving in adjacent shops to prevent them from spreading the flames, and organizing a local "bucket brigade" to help throw dirt on the spreading grass fires.
