Van Meter Fire

Kingsley Field Firefighters confronted a rapidly advancing wall of flame when responding to a wildland fire burning just over 10 miles from base gates and home to several 173rd Fighter Wing Airmen, Sept. 7, 2022 in Klamath Falls, Ore. Later named the Van Meter Fire, three Kingsley firefighters and an engine helped protect structures even when the fire burned right up to the foundation.
