Fighting Fire

Came upon this scene after leaving Tulbach. Two helicopters working flat out to stop this fire. The mountains in this area were devastated a year or so ago with a fire that got out of control. The amazing thing is that they had to constantly clear power cables everyt ime they needed to fill up with water. Made #497 on 6 May 2007 to Flickr Explore.
