4 am -Three members of the Caney Creek Fire Department left out at 4 am this morning headed for Hobby Airport. There they will meet 40 other Houston Area firefighters for a Southwest Airlines flight to California. A stop will be made in San Antonio to pick up an additional 100 firefighters. These firefighters are relieving crews that have been there for 3-weeks battling the worst wildfire outbreak in California history. The crews work on 24 off 24 shifts. Several weeks ago several Montgomery County area trucks drove to California, according to Caney Creek Fire Chief that equipment is expected to remain until at least the middle of November.
