Del. firefighters move from Colorado to Wyoming to battle blaze

    The Delaware firefighters dispatched to battle the wildfire in Colorado last week are now in Wyoming.

    The state’s Arapaho Fire is nearly 88,000 acres and only 10 percent contained, with a high potential for growth.

    Twenty firefighters from the First State were sent to assist, and were moved Monday to a different location in Colorado. The crew that went is made up of volunteers, and is expected to return at the end of the two-week tour.
