Just an FYI you guys are getting help from other USAR teams and Wildland FF teams from other parts of the country. Along with air support from the Fed Govt and grants have already been issued for the hardest hit areas.
As an example the air tanker brought in is owned by a private company and least to the US Forest Service. IT is a DC-10 capable of dropping 12,ooo gallons of retardent over an area. The costs of leasing the plane for this fire does fall onto the state.
