Multiple crews were fighting a large brush fire near Auburn, Washington, on April 18.
Local media reported crews were called to a fire at Southeast Green Valley Road, which started when a burn pile got out of control in dry and windy conditions.
The video, filmed by Steve Hickey, shows a helicopter conducting water drops in difficult terrain.
