Black Hawk 1

A UH-60 "Blackhawk" helicopter from the Oklahoma Army National Guard assists local fire fighters near Guthrie, Oklahoma, as they attempt to contain wildfires that claimed more the 6,000 acres of land and numerous homes in less than 24 hours. The Blackhawks can carry 660 gallons of water in their "Bambi Bucket" which they refill in local ponds and reservoirs.
