Conditions have been very dry in Lake Tahoe this season. There have been several small wildfires recently, usually caused by humans, either through faulty electrical wiring or ignition indiscretion. The woods are easy to ignite under these circumstances. This wildfire helicopter was only about 1 kilometer away and made over 20 trips along with a second helicopter in order to get the fire 100% contained.
