Chopper flying over my house looking for water. They normally pump their tanks from water behind wal-mart.
Its especially dangerous because of winds, mountains, and low visibility. Here’s a helicopter dealing with Santa Ana’s. Its not uncommon for these birds to crash.
Just got a call from Steve who can see my place from the mountains, he says the fire looks pretty close to our house but the wind is blowing it away from us so we should be okay…then his cell connection died.
