It was bound to happen. Those yellow “firefighter shirts” have set off a fashion trend.
The GUARDIAN covered the big range fire near Hilltop on Highway 21 Tuesday, joining the other newsies at a vantage point manned by BLM fire information officers. It is standard protocol for both the firefighters and those media folks covering wildfires to wear yellow fire retardant shirts. The dirtier the shirt, the more “veteran” the look.
KTVB Channel 7 reporter Morgan Boydston put the camera boys to shame wearing a chic open shoulder smock in the appropriate shade of yellow. The raven-haired reporter certainly stood out among the camera-toting guys!
