Could we starve the fire of oxygen in some way like covering patches of areas that are reachable by helicopter to drop a sheet of fireproof material. It act as a lid over each small patch and as the fire dies off patch by patch we can push
towards the outter and more harder to reach area.

Is it not possible to seed the clouds in that area so as to contain the fire with the rainfall or hail stones in areas that are hard to reach?
