Aircraft Douses Mountainside as Ptarmigan Fire Surges

Authorities ordered evacuations in Summit County, Colorado, on September 28, as the Ptarmigan Fire grew to 83 acres after breaking out a day earlier.

This footage, recorded on Tuesday morning, captures an aircraft dropping retardant in the vicinity of Silverthorne, Colorado. Other video, shared by local law enforcement, showed a Chinook helicopter gathering water from a nearby pond. At least 100 personnel were involved in firefighting efforts as of September 28.
