19-Year-Old Little Pilot Joins to Contain Massive California Fire


A little helicopter pilot has joined to fight the massive blaze in California that consumed more than 3 million acres. 

The teenager Ashli Blaine now ready to contain the deadly fire which started months ago in California. Blaine flies one of the largest helicopter- the 40000-pound ch-47 Chinook.

"You could say it's the family trade," Blaine told CBS News. "My dad's been fighting fires for close to 30 years now. As soon as I got into flying I knew that was going to be one of my end goals was to get into firefighting."

Blaine said she has been piloting since she was 13 years old. She said she worked with her father combatting the SCU Lightning Fire that broke out in August of this year.

Blaine is really an inspiration to the whole world.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been nearly 7.900 wildfires that have burned over 3.3 million acres in California. Since August 15, when California’s fire activity elevated, there have been 25 fatalities and over 4,200 structures destroyed.

Over 17,000 firefighters remain on the front lines of 25 major and 2 extended attack wildfires in California.

The fire changed the country to a state can't breath properly due to the worse air quality. In the reddish atmosphere people can't realise the day- nights change. Poor air quality has led contractors throughout the region to pause work on projects. “The California wildfires have resulted in unhealthy air quality and extreme heat, creating heightened hazards for AGC of California contractors,” says Peter Tateishi, CEO, AGC of California.
