ANDERSON, Calif. -- A critical aspect of fighting a raging wild fire, such as the Carr Fire in Northern California, comes from the skies and onto a sheet of paper.


This is where the California National Guard steps forward to provide a significant firefighting method. A team from the Air National Guard's 195th Airlift Wing is utilized as a reconnaissance and surveillance unit, providing the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) up-to-date intelligence used to battle the state's most treacherous blaze this year.
