Three more Green Valley Fire District firefighters have left to help fight wildland fires out-of-state. The firefighters departed Monday morning for Eureka, Calif., where they will be battling the Orleans Complex on the Six Rivers National Forest, according to GVFD Operations Chief Joey Kosiorowski. Lightning started the fire on July 25 and, as of Monday morning, the fire had consumed 26,500 acres of timber, brush and short grass. Three other GVFD firefighters are helping out with the lightning-caused Meyers Fire west of Butte, Montana which was nearing 61,000 acres Monday morning, according to the U.S. Forest Service.
