A member of an elite helicopter wildfire crew has become the first female firefighter from the California Department of Forestry to die in the line of duty, state officials said Monday.
Eva Schicke, 24, of Arnold, was killed Sunday after she and six other firefighters were dropped into rugged terrain just outside Yosemite National Park and overrun by the flames. Her body was recovered Monday morning.
