Community, General, Sunrise Powerlink

Regional fire officials requested SDG&E to send its Erickson Air-Crane, the Sun Bird, to help fight a fast-moving brushfire near the U-S Mexico border. The Sun Bird made several water drops on the Cowboy Fire, which started Sept. 2, 2010 and burned more than 800 acres near the communities of Campo and Potrero before being contained four days later.
