Nevada Firefighting Strike Teams Continue Deploying To California

Two more firefighting strike teams are being deployed from Nevada to Southern California to help fight wildland blazes that have raged from Ventura County to the Mexico border.

Fire officials say one group of nine firefighters from North Las Vegas and another group of 10 from rural parts of southern Nevada were due to leave for a staging area in Chino, Calif.

Both teams expect to stay in California for up to two weeks.

They join more than 175 firefighters and others from Nevada already assisting in Southern California.

A Nevada Division of Forestry fire officer in Carson City reports no injuries among Nevada strike teams, which battled blazes in and around Los Angeles County and were being moved south to fight blazes in San Diego.
