Rim Fire (near Yosemite in CA)
The Rim has been burning since Aug. 17 and is at 2 percent containment. KCRA is reporting that the fire grew to 105,620 acres over night, go here for their report. I understand that tankers and helos working the Rim Fire include (but are not necessarily limited to) at least one of the DC-10 tankers, C-130 MAFFS, and helos.
KCRA has good coverage on the Rim Fire and other fires in northern CA. Here are some links that you might be interested in:
Revised on December 10, 2015 to remove dead links including dead link to inciweb page on Rim Fire.
