An additional 100 Arizona firefighters are scattered across six different states. Now, Texas is asking for assistance as well.
"We're kind of going on a day-to-day basis," said Tiffany Davila with the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. "We're looking at what those needs are for those states and filling them based on what we can do from the state of Arizona."
Davila says Arizona has access to about 3,000 firefighters statewide. Crews are normally on a 14- to 21-day assignment. About 75 pieces of firefighting equipment from Arizona are also in other states.
