Small forest fire

The weather around here has been unseasonably hot and dry (usually not like this until August). A couple of days ago a small fire of unknown origon got started within a few hundred feet of where the water treatment plant draws it's water from.
Fortunately the wind was calm and the fire was quickly brought under controll with only 1/3 of an acre burned.
I took quite a number of pictures but these ones of the chopper bucketing the fire were the most interesting.
