MS firefighters head to CA to help battle forest fire

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Several Mississippi firefighters are headed out of the Mississippi heat to battle another form of heat on the west coast.

A 20 man firefighter crew left the Jackson area Saturday morning geared up and prepared to fight a large forest fire in northern California.

The men are from all over the magnolia state. Before heading out they were briefed on supplies and safety precautions.

The firefighters are expected to be out of town for 14 days. They're joining hundreds from across the country already in California helping to put out the blaze.
