3,300 firemen fight fire with helicopters in full load

“Woolsey Fire”, one of the major three fires roaring through California, has reportedly forced the evacuation of about 250,000 residents in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

With the wind coming down, it’s the golden time for helicopters to fight against the fire.

“We still do have 3,300 firefighters assigned to this fire. And with that changing weather that we’ve seen, if that pattern continues, we should expect to see those containment numbers rise, and the number of firefighters decreases,” said Chris Anthony, a division chief with the State of California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection East Division Operations.

Anthony said many local residents were evacuated from their homes, but their desire for coming back is getting stronger as winter approaches.

The firefighting helicopters in the airport are working in full load, he added.
