Connecticut Wildfire Crew Ready To Be Sent West

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental protection says it has a crew ready to be dispatched to help fight western wildfires if needed.  A spokesperson says the twenty-member crew is made up of DEEP firefighters and members of local departments.

There’s no indication if or when they might be called,  or where they might be sent.  They could be dispatched to Arizona,  where 19 firefighters were killed Sunday evening,  or to New Mexico, Colorado, California or Alaska where other wildfires are burning.
