DC 10 was not deverted due to 65 minutes of flight time left. Send another heavy in it's place to Yosemite. DC 10 as well as other heavies on the ground at McClellan. Going from 1800 acres last nite to over 4000 today with impressive burn rate.

Interesting part of the Sand fire, was a home owner doing a firing around his house causing the main fire to do what they did not want. 2 helo's kept putting the guys fire when they decided to paint his house pink.
