Those spot fires…
Daylight – and a tiny bit of rain up here in Trepanier – and this fire looks less menacing right now (9am) than it did last night as it slowly made its way down the mountainside. Was a bit hard to sleep. Spot fires flared up late Wednesday afternoon – I noticed it really grew, starting around 4pm.
And those helicopter pilots 👏🏻– at the height of yesterday, there were three – and I timed only a minute and a half between drops.
Give it hell today, firefighters!
