"See the fire through my eyes!" That is what the pilot of this heli and a Sky Crane said.
This was shot while the fire was only 80,000 acres. Today it is near 140,000 acres and while the flames are no longer a threat to Los Alamos, the smoke in town is still very bad.
Here are the latest specs.

As the pilot says in the video, lets all thank our firefighters for all their effort!
