Friday report inconclusive on need for state air tanker fleet
DENVER -- A report to be published Friday will stop short of concluding that a state-run fleet of air tankers will help Colorado lower the risk of a catastrophic wildfire, FOX31 Denver has learned. While air support has contributed to successful firefighting efforts in many cases, it's never been the main factor in containing and controlling wildfires, according to the report.
