A dozen crews from the California Conservation Corps  -- 170 corpsmembers -- are helping to combat the wildfires in San Diego and Santa Barbara counties.

CCC crews from Los Angeles, Pomona, San Diego and San Bernardino are assisting with logistical support at fire camps in San Diego County.  Crews are working for both Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service; they are assigned to the Bernardo and Tomahawk fires among other locations.

In Santa Barbara County, Camarillo and San Luis Obispo corpsmembers are helping with both initial attack efforts and camp support on the Miguelito Fire.

Additional CCC crews stand ready to assist where needed.
