Firefighting aircraft at the Range Fire in California
(Last Updated On: August 30, 2016)
We have some excellent photos of aircraft that worked the Range Fire on August 27 six miles east of Arvin, California — thanks to Trey Spooner and the Kern County Fire Department. The fire burned 518 acres and is 100 percent contained.
Kern County’s Helicopter 408, a Bell UH-1H, made 81 water drops at the fire on August 26.
