SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Firefighters are getting a new tool this summer that promises quicker wildfire containment times and it won't cost taxpayers a dime.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and Fire-Rescue Chief Brian Fennessy unveiled their newest weapon against wildfires Thursday. 

It's called the Fire Boss. It's an 800-gallon capacity air tanker that that can fly for three hours straight and take off from or land on a body of water.

A company called Aero Spray Incorporated is letting firefighters use the aircraft for free through July.
