San Diego Fire Update #2 (May 14, 2014) Updated

As the sun has begun to set, the winds have calmed, and air tankers are flying overhead almost constantly now. Cal Fire has shifted their concentration from a fire to the south. They are picking up fire retardant at the Ramona airport and are flying over Escondido lined up as they make their runs over the San Marcos fire located just southwest of Cal State San Marcos (CSUSM). A VLAT (very large air tanker) DC-10 is being used as part of the fire suppression effort. There are also multiple helicopters dumping water on the fire.
