Forty local firefighters leave tonight for the Poomacha Fire in southern California. These firefighters are divided into two 20-person interagency hand crews. The crews currently include 16 firefighters from the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland, five from Rocky Mountain National Park, two from the Colorado State Forest Service, six from Larimer County, one from Boulder County, and 10 from AmeriCorps. These two crews, compiled of experienced firefighters with various areas of expertise, will support ongoing efforts to slow the spread of fires in southern California. The Poomacha Fire has already burned more than 25,000 acres. (PHOTO/ DENNIS SCHROEDER/ ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **
