Two Super Scooper planes swooped in to get water from Castaic Lake as they tackled the Charlie Fire in California on Saturday, September 22. The Charlie Fire broke out on Saturday afternoon and quickly spread to thousands of acres within hours. As many as 50 homes on San Francisquito Canyon Road were evacuated. No structures were damaged, and an evacuation order was lifted by Monday morning, local media reported. Three helicopters and two Super Scooper aircraft were deployed to tend the blaze. The fire was contained 30 per cent by Monday morning, after burning 3,380 acres over the weekend, fire officials said. Credit: Curtis Richards via Storyful
