This is the ground view of the chopper video we posted earlier today from Thursday’s RV and house fire in Jurupa Valley, California. The videographer is our friend Capt. Joe Schmoe of the blog Report on Conditions (you can actually see Joe at 11:17 in the helicopter video). Capt. Joe tells us the fire was in the City of Riverside and sent us the following info:
Fire was actually in the city of Riverside, crew was a county engine covering a RIV station due to the brush fire.
… those were actually drops from a police dept. helicopter (Hughes 500D). The IC at the riverbottom brush fire was only marginally aware of this fire and the arriving crews didn’t know it was coming.
I’m not sure if the air unit unit was requested to drop, or whether it did so on it’s own, but I can tell you that the first drop bought some time for the bravo side exposure.
The crews actually did a pretty good job as they were met with some challenging conditions.
