Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed additional state emergency personnel, including two New York Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, to the scene of a wildfire burning in Altona Flat Rock, Clinton County, that began on Thursday afternoon. The Army National Guard aircraft employed water buckets to place about 48,000 gallons of water onto the wildfire, flying some 73 drops for the day today. The crews, led by Chief Warrant Officer 3 Matt Quackenbush, flew about 14 hours today and will continue to coordinate additional support to the Forest Rangers on the scene as local and state authorities work to contain the fire.
