The Berkeley Fire Department received the call for help early Monday morning. They sent an engine north to Santa Rosa to help with what they thought was a “large grass fire.”

When the strike team, made up of both Berkeley and San Francisco firefighters, arrived in Santa Rosa before sunrise, they were stunned to see the scope of the already massive Tubbs Fire.

A video shot and edited by a Berkeley firefighter (above) shows the crew’s reaction when they realized just how large the destructive fire had grown overnight.
