Picture of the Day - When Overkill Is Good

This is how the 21-acre Gibraltar Fire near Gibraltar Peak looming over Santa Barbara, CA, and environs atop the Santa Ynez Mountains looked today after being heavily pummeled by fire retardant from various air tankers including Tanker 912. The reason for such a heavy-handed response was due to the Santa Ana Winds that started today and will last into tomorrow. Photo courtesy of Los Padres NF/USFS (all rights reserved).
