As FOX40’s Ben Deci and Larry Muchowski were working on their report on the Panther Fire near Chico, they were interrupted by an air tanker fighting the blaze from above.

“We just got fire retardant dumped on us. It’s good for fighting the blaze, not great for reporting in,” Deci said.

As of 8 p.m. Thursday evening, the fire had spread to 10,000 acres and was only 10 percent contained. It started that morning.
