Firefighter Help

Forty firefighters left Saturday for southern Utah to help with the Sanford fire, which is a 65,000-acre blaze in a national forest.

They joined 17 other Florida firefighters already working in western states on wildfires.

The two 20-person crews are employees of the state Division of Forestry and various local fire departments. Across the West, 17 large fires were burning in seven states on Sunday.
