SANTA ROSA — A Cal Fire air tanker flying to the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport somehow unloaded pink fire retardant on a Windsor neighborhood early Thursday afternoon, CBS San Francisco reports.

About 100 gallons of the liquid fell on about a dozen homes and cars in the 300 block of Decanter Circle in southwest Windsor, which lies within a flight path of the airport, Windsor police Sgt. Andy Cash said.

Neighbors took the incident in stride, joking about free car washes and pink sidewalks, Cash said.

The Cal Fire plane was either heading to, or returning from, a fire call to Petaluma but was not needed after all, Cash said.

Do not unto another that you would not have him do unto you. Thou needest this law alone. It is the foundation of all the rest.(Confucius)
