Earlier today a brushfire broke out on a vacant hillside east of Briggs Rd., between Holland and Garboni, requiring multiple fire units as well as two aerial firefighting helicopters.

I speculate that the helicopters, fitted with hanging snorkels, obtained the water to fight the fire from nearby Diamond Valley Lake.

The fire was contained by the time I took took the following video at approximately 2:15 pm today. If you look closely, you can see a line of firefighters in the upper left hand corner of the video, who looks like created a control line by backburning in order to keep the fire from spreading South.

Unfortunately, at the time of this posting I have no further information as to when the fire started and what caused it. video

(As to the quality of my videos..... yeah, I know. Sorry about that. I couldn't see what I was taping because of the sun, and I was hurrying because I saw a police cruiser was on his way to kick me and my Pop off the dirt road we snuck down on.)
