I'm surprised that for brushfires FDNY doesn't dispatch an air recon much earlier into the incident.  Having an overall view of the scene from the air is certainly extremely beneficial when fighting brushfires.

Thanks for the added info, Phish.

Flames were dangerously close to houses and were reported to be as high as telephone poles

Homeowners in area believe that fireworks set by kids sparked the fire:
