July 3rd in Laguna was rather eventful when a fire broke out up on Laguna Canyon Road.
Fortunately for all it was knocked down quickly before having a chance to spread thanks to an aggressive response from the Laguna Fire Department, Orange County Fire Authority and Cal Fire aircraft and hand crews.
The video shows one of Cal Fire's smaller fixed wing aircraft swooping over the fire dropping fire retardent. There were also two helicopters and another large fixed wing jet working the fire.
My video is a little shaky because it was shot hand held. The original is clearer than uploaded here, sorry! I don't know enough about how to do that. I tried the original but it was too large a file to load here.
Update: I reposted a better video above by uploading it first through YouTube.
No rain this year and all our dry brush and it could have been devastating, especially since this is the beginning of the festival season and there was a lot of people in the canyon.
