The whole state is burning down, why? Maybe we need to think outside the box? Why not configure B-52s with water in their bomb bays and fly six or more over a fire and dump tons of water to put it out. The only cost is the new water containers to fit in the bomb bays. The B-52s are flying training missions every day, so why not let them bomb fires?
