Tanker 88 drops on Division Mike

Cal Fire Tanker 88 runs up the center of the Clay Fire and drops its load of fire retardant on Division Mike, a group of 4 or 5 fire engines led by Diamond Springs Fire Chief Todd Cunningham (Chief 8100). Division Mike was assigned to suppress the head of the fire as it ran up a ravine toward a cluster of houses.

You'll have to excuse the grainy shots. My Canon EF 17-300 mm lens had a hard time producing crisp photos from my vantage point on Sacramento Hill, about a mile to the southwest of Clay Street in Placerville.
