“Forest Service Huey is now on site at Swannanoa fire. It’s dipping out of Owen Park. Five buckets down now,” Aaron D. D’Innocenzi said via Twitter at about 1 p.m. on Saturday, shortly after firefighters managed to build a containment line all the way around the 35-acre fire off Sims Lane, north of Bee Tree Road.
