 huh In the video I see firetrucks but no water?

Why aren't they putting the fire out? It won't matter for insurance, because it's gouvernment equipment anyway.

We need spare parts ..... rolleyes

There were several air drops made by a Ventura County Fire helicopter, but they seemed to have little effect.

Where do you get that from? Omega Air Refueling services is a private corporation, and that was a civilian N-reg plane.
