Soldiers Are Deploying To Help Fight Wildfires PDF Print E-mail
About 200 soldiers from the Army’s 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division are being mobilized this week to help fight historical wildfires currently ravaging America’s northwest, officials said Tuesday.

The soldiers hail from across the brigade and will be working with civilian firefighters and the National Interagency Fire Center to prepare for the mission, which could begin within a week, according to an Army release.

As the Mendocino Complex fire continues to ravage northern California with an historic inferno, Army officials said it was not clear whether the soldiers would be sent there or if they were needed to battle fires elsewhere.

Fire center officials did not immediately respond to questions about where the soldiers are headed.
