Park fire crew heading to California


Members of the Type II fire crew from Hawaii Volcanoes, Haleakala, Puukohola Heiau, and WW II Valor in the Pacific national parks are due to leave Wednesday, Sept. 2 for California.

The 20-person crew is bound for southern California where they will receive their assignment to join other firefighters in suppressing wildfires burning throughout the state.

Currently, 10 large fires are raging out of control in California. The biggest is a 100,000 acre fire near Los Angeles. 

Also, a 5,000-acre fire is burning in Yosemite National Park.

Island park crews previously have jetted off to help battle blazes across the western states.
