Cal Fire Capt. Aaron Bishop calls in a helicopter water drop on the east side of the mountain at the Monticello Fire on Sunday, July 6, 2014, near Winters, Calif. After the Monticello Fire broke out the night of July 4 in Yolo County, the department sought help from area agencies. Among them was the Sacramento Fire Department, which dispatched two engines before dawn the next day, as well as crews from Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Diego counties.
