California’s Fawn Fire was reported to be 45 percent contained by the evening of September 26, having burned 8,559 acres.
Over 140 buildings have been destroyed by the fire, Cal Fire’s Shasta Trinity Unit said.
This footage was captured by Rilee Nilsson, a firefighter on the Yosemite Wildland Fire Module Unit.
The striking footage, which she said was captured on September 23 in Sequoia National Park shows a helitanker dropping retardant “to help protect the infrastructure in the park headquarters”. Credit: Rilee Nilsson via Storyful
