It was fascinating to watch! It is amazing those helicopters can scoop up water into giant collapsible bags and dump it out so dangerously close to the mountain.
Airplanes circled around and dropped red flame retardant around the perimeter of the fire.
People in our neighborhood watched for hours. The helicopters and planes worked all day in the near 100 degree weather.
It took about 20 hours to put the fire out. They worked until every bit of smoke was gone.
We are grateful for their work!
