Arizona Firefighters Sent To Help Contain California Camp Fire

Fires over Oxnard
editorial | staff
Fires over Oxnard, California, in November 2018.

Fires are still blazing across the state of California. As of Tuesday morning, at least 42 people have died.

The Camp Fire just north of Sacramento has become the deadliest fire in state history. It has burned over 117,000 acres and is now 30 percent contained.

In Southern California, the Woolsey Fire remains strong as well, blanketing much of the Los Angeles area in smoke.

The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire management is sending a slew of Arizona crews to our neighboring state to help contain those fires.

Tiffany Davila is with the department and joined The Show to talk more about it.
