Firefighters head south to help out

Posted: Friday, May 3rd, 2013




WATSONVILLE A team of 22 firefighters from Santa Cruz County left Friday afternoon to help fight the huge fire in Venture County, making the eight-hour drive to Southern California.

Other agencies that made the trip were Scotts Valley, Branciforte, Zayante and Central Fire.

Conrad said the shifting winds have caused the blaze to spread north and south, a change from the westerly direction it was previously moving.

A shift of wind can change everything, Conrad said.
