An arson had set fire to Mt. San Jacinto (Elevation 10,981) in Palm Springs, CA, which burned over 40,000 acres of the extremely steep mountain. Helicopters were getting water from every available source, including the many man-made lakes and water hazards on the countless golf courses in the Palm Springs area.
