CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a helicopter collects water from the Turn Basin to douse a nearby brush fire. The fire was spotted in a rural area southeast of Kennedy’s Press Site approximately three miles away from Launch Pad 39A, where space shuttle Endeavour awaits liftoff on the STS-134 mission to the International Space Station. The fire is being contained by crews from Kennedy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and smoke is not expected to impact launch. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller KSC-2011-3129

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA Fire Rescue Services are on the scene to support a controlled burn in the vicinity of the Industrial Area at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.    The burn, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, targeted 2,174 acres near Kennedy's administrative complex. Shifting winds caused the fire to flare up in places to dramatic effect. Limited visibility caused by the smoke required NASA Security to close some roadways. The burn, which began during the 8 o'clock hour this morning, is expected to be extinguished this evening. Controlled burns are commonplace on the center to reduce the likelihood of an unplanned brush fire during Central Florida's dry season. Photo Credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann KSC-2012-1183

Minutes later, the water was dropped on the target cones in the foreground, using techniques that would be employed to fight a brush fire at the Kennedy Space Center.      Firefighters respond to wildfires with teams on the ground and in the air. The most up-to-date tools include helicopters that use Bambi Buckets large quantities of water.
