Delaware crews are being sent to the west coast to assist in fighting raging wild fires.

A 20 member crew left Saturday morning for a two-week rotation through the National Interagency Fire Center.

WMDT says that the group will likely go to the Pacific Northwest – an area that has seen an uptick in blazes.
