A graduate from Shasta High School has returned to his roots; excited about a multi-use piece of equipment he first envisioned and has now brought to life. It's called the "FYREBX;" it's the result of more than two years of creating, designing, and research and development while Sean Henry was living in Montana for some 20 years. Now, he's back in Shasta County. Sean gave KRCR's Mike Mangas a demonstration at his home in Shingletown on Thursday. It was just released for sale on the Fourth of July and is already attracting a lot of attention. "It was a tool that I needed for myself," Sean said. "And, once we developed it, we saw that there are a lot of uses for everybody—globally. I mean, we've got people in Australia, Israel, Canada...all over; they're excited about the product."
