Burnt Peak Fire started from a lightning strike in a small logging area,
smoldered for nearly a week undetected, then came to life late in the day.  
This three shot series shows a BAE-146 tanker making a retardant drop
On the left, you can see a
helicopter dropping water, far

Another three shot series of a tanker drop.
And a last two shot tanker drops of the evening.

The ground crews caught the fire during the night so
we did not return the next day.
