Fire crews head west to help fight wildland fire
The Logan County Fire Task Force took off for western Oklahoma early Thursday morning to help their fellow firefighters battle wild-fire.
According to Logan County Emergency Manager David Ball, the task force took brush pumpers from Meridian, Sooner, Twin Lakes, Cashion and Deer Creek along with tankers from Orlando and Coyle fire departments to Eagle City, Okla.
Eagle City is a small rural community located on State Highway 58 in western Blaine County northwest of Watonga.
Along with the tankers and brush pumpers, Guthrie Fire Chief Eric Harlow made the trip.
The wildland fire started on Wednesday and has burned 1,200 plus acres covering six-plus square miles.
