Looks like a, let it run to the top, drop retardant across ridge, let helitack keep it in check while it gets flanked- kind of fire. With all the instability around it, it doesn’t seem to want to push up very hard.
Requesting 2 golf ST’s. Plus 2 private hire WT’s.
Trying to post the FIRIS video… guess it’s there.
Kern sent a type 2 IA crew (crew 10).
