Yosemite Fire Threatens "Thousands of Homes"

Started by a target shooter.

Interesting side story:

Politicians and others in power have been known to order air drops to make for good television. It's an expensive way to say "we're doing all we can." Of course, firefighters on the ground see through the smokescreen. They call the useless but expensive flights "CNN Drops."
