Its a long way up Bear Gulch Road. I viewed the smoke from the Baylands; the fire location was nearly up to Skyline. I am amazed that this fire did not turn into something much larger. Kudos to the responders. However, I did't see any air support. Maybe they had departed by the time I saw the smoke.

Three 500-gallon buckets of water from a helicopter helped douse a three-alarm house fire at 1200 Bear Gulch Road on Saturday, June 2. The helicopter drops stopped an intense fire that had spread to nearby trees from becoming a conflagration that involved the forest, Fire Chief Dan Ghiorso of the Woodside Fire Protection District told the Almanac.
