Wildfire scorches land in the Darién province of Panama, April 17, 2016. The fire, which is believed to have started April 4, grew exponentially, prompting the U.S. Embassy in Panama to request an aerial support package from JTF-B consisting of aircraft from the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment, Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, to help contain the fire. Approximately 45,000 people reside in the Darién Province, so stopping the spread of the fire from the undeveloped swampland and forests to residential areas was of utmost importance.
