Roosevelt Fire

Forest area smolders from the Roosevelt Fire in September. Crews from Wyoming and Colorado will help fight wildfires in Canada.

DENVER (AP) — Firefighters from Colorado and Wyoming will help battle wildfires burning in Canada.

One hundred firefighters from five crews — three from Colorado and two from Wyoming — left Denver on a Canadian chartered jet on Wednesday bound for Edmonton, Alberta. A spokesman for the Rocky Mountain Area Coordination Center, Larry Helmerick, said they are scheduled to fight fires for two weeks before returning to Denver.

Last week, Colorado sent one of its two wildfire planes to Fairbanks, Alaska to help respond to fires there.
