Local firefighters heading to California to assist in the wild fires now being told to hold off

Several local firefighters who were heading south to help fight wildfires burning in California have been told to hold off.

The Spokane Fire Department initially authorized three Type 5/6 engines, a strike-team leader and additional firefighters to staff a two-week mission. Nearly 200,000 people in Northern California are under evacuation orders as crews work to contain the Kincaid Fire in Sonoma County.
