"They will be leaving today to go up to the panhandle area, help that incident commander and the incident management team up there handle that incident, a very widespread large incident. And our employees will be leaving this afternoon for a possibly three day deployment," said LFD Division Chief Robert Keinast.
Keinast says this wildfire is a reminder that fire conditions are very dangerous right now and to be extra cautious outdoors, especially as we head into summer.
