    The Waldo Canyon Fire burns on the outskirts of the U.S. Air Force Academy, June 28, 2012. Fort Carson soldiers, assigned to 52nd and 4th Engineer Battalions, used bulldozers and support vehicles to create strips of cleared earth, called firebreaks, ranging from 8 to 100-feet wide, to stop the wildfire from spreading across the academy grounds. During the first 72 hours of the mission, engineers cleared more than 12 miles of land. Mission accomplished at the academy, engineer units and fire fighters returned to Fort Carson to refit equipment and prepare for any future contingencies. Fort Carson Soldiers and emergency responders stand ready to assist the Front Range community, as a whole.
