Marsh Fire--Jindal Expects National Guard To Continue Water Drop From Helicopters
Written by 

 New Orleans Marsh FireGov. Bobby Jindal ordered nine National Guard helicopters to fight against a strange enemy—a burning marsh land in Bayou Sauvage. 

The marsh has been burning now for days in eastern New Orleans and spewing smoke throughout the area. 

Governor Jindal said, “The National Guard has already dropped more than 260,000 gallons of water on the fire and they expect to drop more than 500,000 gallons of water by the end of today. We're continuing to work with the Mayor to provide the necessary resources to combat this marsh fire, and our agencies will stay on the ground until this fire is out.” 

 

Yesterday, Guard helicopters dropped more than 116,000 gallons of water over the marsh fires just north of Highway 90 and east of Industrial Parkway, completing more than four hours of operations each. 

As of this morning, LANG dropped another 147,840 gallons of water, and expects to release a total of more than a half-million gallons by the end of the day using nine helicopters dedicated to the aerial firefight; eight carrying helibuckets and one acting as command and control. Helibuckets are large buckets suspended by a cable used to carry water for aerial firefighting. 

The LANG is working in cooperation with the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP), who is coordinating efforts with other state agencies to ensure the safety of citizens. 

On Tuesday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu declared a state of emergency because of the Marsh Fire which is believed started after lightning on August 24.
