Air Dropped Fire Retardant and Paint Spheres
This is from a home impacted by a near approach of the Etiwanda fire. The Etiwanda fire was typical of a Southern
California Chaparral fire. When only transmitted light is used the paint spheres cannot be distinguised from the spheres of fire retardant. This is
from an environmental tapelift collected in the attic of this home.
