Call for Delaware fire crews cancelled

Delaware fire crews will not be heading to Colorado to help fight the High Park Fire.  
Twenty members of the state’s volunteer wildland firefighters were scheduled to leave this morning to help fight the blaze that has already burned about 66,000 acres near the Roosevelt National Forest.  Delaware has dispatched wildfire crews to help other states nearly every year since 1998.
