Mexico sending 101 firefighters to help in California

Mexico announced they will be sending 101 firefighters to the United States to help put out the wildfires in California.

On Wednesday, the country’s Environment Department said five teams of 20 trained, equipped firefighters from Mexico’s national forestry commission will work with the U.S. Forest Service.

They will be sent first to work in California’s Sequoia National Park, which is threatened by the SQF Complex of fires ignited by lightning in the Sequoia National Forest. The wildfire has been burning since mid-August.
