A fire you didn’t hear about

Firefighters on the ground and in the air routinely put out fires when they are small, but only the large fires that threaten private property get the extensive news coverage. The Mesa Fire was knocked down Saturday at about 7 p.m. after burning two acres in Cajon Pass in southern California near Interstate 15. Helicopter 531, Air Attack 51, and firefighters on the ground made the stop.

  1. Yep… the LA ,media market was covering a small wildfire along a freeway (134) in the downtown area that had nowhere to go along an offramp…, while Air Attack 51 and Helicopter 531 were supporting TWO initial attack fires on the San Bernardino NF.
