Combined forces puts out bazaar fire, save lives, property in Paktika

Soldiers with Company A, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, combined with Afghan National Army soldiers to put out a fire in the Yahya Khel District bazaar, in Paktika province, Afghanistan, June 22. The combined security forces slowed the spread of the fire by 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.
