FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR, OREGON IS SENDING FIRE CREWS TO CALIFORNIA. THE FIRE NEAR VENTURA HAS GROWN TO MORE THAN 50,000 ACRES. GRESHAM IS SENDING TWO ENGINES AND PORTLAND IS SENDING THREE ENGINES. IT WAS JUST SIX WEEKS AGO THAT OREGON CREWS HELPED BATTLE THE WILDFIRES IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. THEY GOT THEIR WILDFIRE GEAR OUT OF STORAGE AND LEFT YESTERDAY. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME EVER THAT OREGON CREWS HAVE HELPED CALIFORNIA TWICE IN ONE YEAR.
