Area tribal firefighters sent to Oregon

Posted: Updated:

Undated_Some Comanche Nation firefighters are on their way to help battle flames in Oregon. They're joining other firefighters from Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas fight wildfires in the Pacific Northwest.

Moist and relatively cool conditions have helped cut down on fire dangers in our region.

The firefighters are staying in tents in Redmond, Oregon and being sent to wildfire sites when they're needed.

A tribal spokesperson says they're expected back on Friday.
