It may be December, but members of the California Conservation Corps were still sent to a forest fire.  Thirty corpsmembers from the CCC's Monterey Bay Center were dispatched Monday to the Pfeiffer Fire in the Big Sur area. 

The corpsmembers are assisting the U.S. Forest Service with logistical support at the fire camp.

The fire, located in the Los Padres National Forest, destroyed at least a dozen homes, including one belonging to the local fire chief.
