    Super Scooper Planes Used to Battle Fire in Irwindale

    Super Scooper planes on loan from Canada are used to battle a brush fire in Irwindale. Gil Leyvas reports for NBC4 News at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019)

    County fire crews mounted a ground and air attack on a fire that's scorched about 12 acres of brush before being stopped in the Santa Fe Dam area in Irwindale Wednesday.

    The fire was spreading at a moderate rate amid 3 mph winds, a department spokesman said.

    Super Scooper planes could be seen doing water drops on the fire and utilizing a nearby lake to pick up water.

    In addition, a large homeless encampment was visible near the brush fire and was possibly under threat from a spot fire near the original brush fire.
