Florida Forest Service Helps With Western Wildfires

BROOKSVILLE -- It's not wildfire season in Florida, thanks to summer rains. But Florida firefighters are helping out with fires out West.

The Florida Forest Service says at least two dozen firefighters are working with their counterparts in several western states this weekend.

The Withlacoochee office, which covers an area from Citrus to Pasco counties, has firefighters helping out in Texas, California, New Mexico and Montana.

Crews from around the state have been lending a hand with western wildlife season for much of the summer.
