This Sea King is one of six helicopters, two SEAT tankers, two BAe air tankers, two Super Scoopers, and that Erickson Mad Dog back there that are involved in the air attack of the North Fire that started near Hallelujah Junction, CA, and then jumped the CA-NV state line into Nevada. As of this morning, the fire was 10% contained.
