More than 300 firefighters from across are Alaska are in California battling wildfires for at least the next two weeks.  Most of them travelled from Interior Alaska villages for the Alaska Fire Service and the Alaska Division of Forestry. The crews came through Fairbanks before they left for the Lower 48.  For some, it’s a respite from village life. For others it will be the first time they’ve left the state.
