| Solano firefighters head to SoCal blazes
As many as nine wildfires are burning in Southern California, causing damage and evacuations en masse.
And as with the recent fires in Napa and Sonoma counties, firefighters from all over the state — including Solano County — are headed out to lend a hand.
Vacaville Fire Chief Kris Concepcion said Wednesday that Vacaville is part of a strike team that headed out Tuesday to SoCal.
Five engines are part of the team, he said, and includes crews from Vacaville, Fairfield, Rio Vista and Dixon.
“They’re headed to the Creek Fire,” he said. “They can be there for up to seven days.”
The Creek Fire is located on Kagel Canyon Road north of Lake View Terrace in Los Angeles County.
As of 3:27 p.m., CalFIRE had estimated that 11,377 acres had burned.
The chief said that the team’s length of stay depends on numerous factors, including how long the apparatus they’re bringing is needed to battle the blaze.
“They could stay up to 14-21 days,” he confirmed.
Meanwhile, he pointed out that Vacaville residents continue to be safe while our team of firefighters are away.
“We’ve got full staffing,” he said.
Wednesday afternoon, a second local crew headed to SoCal.
“We have just deployed a second unit, OES Engine 357 with four personnel as part of a strike team,” wrote officials on the Vacaville Fire Department’s Facebook page.
The team was en route to the Skirball fire in Bel-Air.
Located at North Sepulveda Boulevard at Interstate 405 in Los Angeles County, the fire reportedly burned about 50 acres.
