Fires in Trinity County continue.....

This helicopter is amazing. I'm not sure what they called it. It is BIG. This one is carrying a bucket underneath it. The bucket holds 2,000 gallons of water in it. It will go, makes it dump, then come back to the air port, the ground grew would re-fill the bucket up.

See the Red Bucket below, this helicopter is on its way back to the fair grounds.
Now he is lowering the bucket down to the airport notice the difference in the sky color. That is heavy dark blue grey smoke in the background. 
You can not see the bucket here just the long cable that holds the bucket. The bucket is now on the ground.

As you can see now that helicopter is coming on down to land. This was amazing to watch!
