Firehouse

September 2014

A DC-10 air tanker drops retardant behind houses threatened by the Miguelito Fire in Lompac, Santa Barbara County, CA, on May 13, 2014, as one of the more than 49 engines that responded to the incident works on a structure-protection assignment. About 1,200 residents were evacuated from their homes. The fire burned more than 600 acres before it was contained by more than 550 firefighters.
