NJ fire service to help crews in Northern California fight wildfire

Posted: Updated:
EDISON -

Later today, crews from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service will arrive in Northern California to help crews fight a deadly wildfire.

They started driving cross-country on Friday.

That fire has killed at least six people.

Over the weekend, searchers found the bodies of a woman and her two great grandchildren who died in their home.

A second firefighter has also died.

The fire has burned at least 95,000 acres.

Crews are making "some" progress, but another day of hot, dry temperatures will prove difficult to fight again today.
