We are going to burn up this year, things are so dry and it seems like everyday another fire is reported.
Yesterday I was driving to my office when I got a call asking how long it would take me to get to the hanger, it took me 35 minutes. We took off and covered a small fire that had started at a salvage auto sales business and then spread to some grassy areas towards a couple other businesses.
We landed and I got in my car to drive to the office and got another call to get back in the chopper and head south to Alpine for another fire. I drove in a circle around the hanger and got back in and spent the rest of the afternoon flying.
We shot photos and video for several hours and then I switched out and drove back down and shot some photos from the ground.
