John Hall of JDH Images took these excellent photos of Air Tanker 914, a DC-10, dropping retardant on the Central Fire at about 5 p.m. June 20, 2020.
Mr. Hall told me that he was a firefighter 18 years ago. You can see more of his photos on Instagram (@jdhimg).
The fire has burned about 2,000 acres east of New River, Arizona. Wildfire Today has more information about the Central Fire.
(UPDATE at 4:38 p.m. MDT June 2, 2020)
I asked Mr. Hall if the retardant line created by the DC-10 Saturday held the fire. He said:
I drove by on New River Road yesterday and it looked like that retardant line held. It kept the fire from spreading laterally, but it *raced* up the steep slope vertically and then crested onto the New River Mesa. They’ve been chasing it up top since then. I don’t recall seeing any fire burn through any of the retardant lines on Saturday. Quite the opposite, actually.
