Auburn Firefighters Head South to Battle Blazes

Auburn Firefighters and 1 engine were sent to the Cocos Fire Incident in San Diego County Thursday morning.  Additional strike teams have been requested from up and down the state and across the county as a number of blazes are burning out of control in Southern California. Auburn City Fire Division Chief Corey Zander says because they have adequate staffing levels for the time being they were able to provide mutual aid and send an engine. The department is facing a cut of 5 firefighters in September when the SAFER grant that funded their hiring expires.
