As massive wildfires rage across other parts of the country, Washington State is still looking fairly safe from fire season. So, local crews are being sent to assist with efforts elsewhere. But with the 4th of July holiday and dry, hot weather on the way, will there be enough firefighters left behind should a blaze break out?
Isaac Kaplan-Woolner made a call to find out.
Fire crews who head out on assignment to assist in other areas of the country are generally on duty for a 14 day rotation.
