Fire retardant drop crushes truck.
In 2010, the Fourmile Fire destroyed 168 houses in Colorado. I left when there was a "mandatory" evacuation for my canyon (they're really not mandatory). A few guys stayed behind to defend their houses. My house burned down, theirs didn't.
However, the firefighters said that the presence of people in the canyon prevented them from doing retardant drops, because it was too dangerous. I was skeptical about that until I saw this video. I still don't get it. How does this also not crush a house? I see that the GIF says "low drop", but the retardant drops I've seen were pretty low too.

If you think about it and remember the thread a while back about a swimming pool bursting, destroying everything in its path was from only building momentum of a volume of water starting from a still condition.
Now take a portion of that volume accelerate it to 100 MPH or more. The devastation could possibly be tremendous
