Video shows back-to-back air drops on the Fairview Fire

Firefighting crews from across Southern California have been deployed to Riverside County to contain the nearly 27,000-acre Fairview Fire, which erupted Monday on the outskirts of Hemet.

A crew from Santa Barbara County captured impressive footage of a small plane followed by a DC-10 dropping flame retardant along the fire perimeter Thursday evening. Video also shows dramatic footage of the Fairview Fire in the area of Stanely Road.

Santa Barabara County had assigned a five-engine “strike team,” a bulldozer, hand crew, and other various resources to fight the fire, the fire department said. 

More than 1,100 firefighters are battling the blaze on the ground and from the air.
