SC National Guard assists effort fighting wildfire

The South Carolina National Guard is helping firefighters battle wildfires in Pickens County.

The South Carolina National Guard responded to a request for support by providing helicopters equipped with Bambi Buckets, which can be filled with any available water to be transported and dumped on the fire.

A UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and a crew of soldiers from the 59th Aviation Troop Command out of McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Eastover responded at Table Rock State Park to help contain a fire near the top of Pinnacle Mountain Tuesday.
