Fire Retardant Drop Coats California Houses in Pink Goo

Playing How Pink Goo Called Phos-Chek Is Saving California Homes From Wildfires

It was a sight to see as pink fire retardant was dropped all over California houses amid the ongoing wildfires.

The brightly colored flame extinguisher, called Phos-Chek, helps to slow the spreading of the fires and is being dropped from planes throughout the area.

Fires across California have consumed hundreds of thousands of acres and damaged structures around the state.

Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for areas affected by a particularly aggressive fire in Southern California, known as the Holy Fire.

Authorities believe the blaze was started intentionally and have arrested a man in connection with it. Forrest Clark has been charged with three counts of arson, among other charges. Clark calls the allegations a "lie."
