By  | 

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- Two fire crews from Kentucky are heading west to help battle wildfires there.

The Daniel Boone National Forest says the Kentucky Interagency Coordination Center mobilized two fire crews Sunday. The crews were joined in Knoxville, Tennessee, by three more crews from Virginia.

They will report for duty in Redmond, Oregon, and then be assigned to various wildfire locations.

Twenty firefighters were sent from the Kentucky Division of Forestry. Another 20 federal agency firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service make up the second crew.
