Smoke filled the Del Monte Park area, the constant drone of copters and air tanker planes can make a person pause and think what would they do if evacuated. Prepared?

The fire broke out about 5:35 p.m. near Congress and Majella roads and was contained quickly, said Capt. Jennifer Valdez of Calfire-Pebble Beach Community Services District.
Crews were assisted by two air tankers and a helicopter in stopping the fire. No structures were threatened, Valdez said.
The forest was so dense that fire crews had to cut their way in to get to the fire.
“We had an air tanker in and they made five drops,” said Battalion Chief Dennis King with the Department of Forestry. “Then we had a helicopter that worked it and probably made a dozen drops on it.”
