Caption: One of the helicopters had a snorkel instead of the usual bambi bucket. Here it is about to drop down to siphon water from the lower pond for another drop.

Thanks, Gil.

Yes, the fire is out and only the "mop up" remains. We were lucky.

Great shot. Neat to watch them suck up that water. Seen them close up and also the Water Buckets scoop up a load of water. I would rather not have the ocassion to have to witness that.
Great series. 10's on all. Stay safe. I am assuming the fire is out or at least contained.
