Watch: Samoan Singing Fire Crew Video in Shasta-Trinity National Forest Goes Viral

A video of a Samoan fire crew singing with the US Forest Service is going viral for its musically uplifting spirit with over 96,000 views on YouTube.

In the video, Samoa Crew 61, better known as the "singing crew," is seen walking down off the mountain in Shasta-Trinity National Park and signing acapella while other firefighters sang harmony.

According to a Facebook post by the U.S. Forest Service, the crew had been working on the Helena-Buck Fires and even received an award from the Incident Commander for their hard work. 

The video was reportedly shot by Lori Light on September 27, a few days before the North Bay wildfires sparked. Light later posted the video on YouTube on Oct. 13.
