Putting out the Wildfire
When putting out a wildfire, one thing fireman most commonly use is fire retardant. This is a substance that is used to help slow down or stop the wildfire from spreading. The retardant accomplishes this by chemical reactions delay the flame's combustion or reduce flammability of fuels. The way retardant is spread normally is by a plane that flies near the fire then dumps a load on, near, and around the flames. In the before picture you can see that the retardant spread all over the home. Once we were on site to clean up the mess, we had the house looking like new!
