SMYRNA, Del. (AP) — A team of firefighters from Delaware is headed to California to help battle the McKinney Fire.

The team of 20 wildland firefighters departed Smyrna’s Blackbird Forest base camp on Tuesday. Kyle Hoyd with the Delaware Forest Service says the team has a long road trip ahead of them. He says the 21-day deployment includes about 14 working days and the rest will be spent driving.

CalFire says the McKinney Fire, which broke out July 29, has consumed about 60,000 acres.
