Wildfire managers tap military for aid in U.S. West

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 12:41

Smoke rises from the Carlton Complex Fire near WinthropBy Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - Wildfire managers have turned to the U.S. Department of Defense for immediate access to two military C-130 aircraft retrofitted to carry retardant, boosting their forces to face the largest blaze in Washington state history. The U.S. Forest Service has its own fleet of more than 20 air tankers, but has in the past called on the military to provide aircraft to help suppress wildfires. Blazes that have raged across hundreds of thousands of acres (ha) of forests and grasslands in Washington state and Oregon triggered the call for the two aircraft, Steve Gage, a senior official with the U.S. Forest Service, told reporters in a conference call on Friday. Chronic drought has also parched much of California, New Mexico and Arizona, heightening the risk and intensity of wildfires.
