And just like that, a 20 hectare fire became a 200 hectare fire, and was doused by an incredible team of wildfire firefighters. We got to watch the water bombers attack the flames one after another, 4 at a time. We got to watch the fire retardant bombers come in and secure the perimeters and douse some flames. And my favourite part, we got to see some incredibly brave pilots fly straight into the smoke, scanning for flames and guiding the bombers through the terrain. This was like an Air Show on steroids. I'm so impressed with the #BCwildfireservice. It was truly a privilege to see man battle nature today.
