The Cle Elum fire was not particularly big, but numerous homes were just down hill and thus its high priority.
The DC-10 Super Tanker, (VLAT), was assigned to this fire.
Its hard to see in the smoke, but the tanker makes a run along the eastern ridge.
These four shots show the DC-10 on a run along the northern edge of the fire.
One last run along the ridge.
One of the few zoomed in
photos that isn't too blurry and
you can identify what it is.
