The above are SEATs, Single Engine Air Tankers. They have been fighting the fires around here including the one 10 miles south of my house headed north. They were grounded for the night and should be resuming operations shortly. All I can say is the pilots and crews better not be paying for any of their own meals.
The fire south of us has so far burned ~4000 acres and at least 30 homes. The ground troops really busted ass last night and held it at the highway crossing.
