August 21 is the 100 year anniversary of the Fires of 1910. The fire burned more than 3 million acres in northern Idaho and western Montana and killed 78 firefighters in just 2 days.

Despite the destruction caused by the fires, many heroes emerged from the blaze. 

The most notable of these is Ranger Ed Pulaski, who helped save the lives of most of his crew. 

Fire historian Travis Touchette tells Pulaski's story.
