"Diario de un bombero"

Pine trees . . . yellow-clad firefighters . . . helicopter with buckets— it looks like the Southern Rockies, but it's Spain.

Bill Gabbart links to a short video on Spanish wildfire-fighting.

The use of flappers (batefuegos) in woody brush seems odd to me too, but maybe they make it work when backed up by water drops.
