Arizona sending fire engines, firefighters to aid California


PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona is sending fire engines and firefighters to help fight California wildfires under a mutual-aid compact between the neighboring states.

The Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs says the 55 engines and 150 firefighters being sent will be used to protect structures against fires in the Santa Rosa and Napa areas.

Department spokeswoman Tiffany Davila (duh-VILL’-uh) says the Arizona engines and personnel are being sent by Arizona Forestry and local agencies.
