Daredevil Helicopters

A large brush fire threatened a portion of south Kihei as well as Maui Meadows this morning.

I was in awe of the four helicopters fighting the fire. They would zoom barely above the tree tops to the nearest backyard pools in the Maui Meadows neighborhood, fill their buckets, zoom back to the fire and dump their water, then head back to the nearest pools again. They were making their round trips in less than two minutes, which meant that water was being dumped on the fire every thirty seconds. Amazing!
