Michigan DNR Employees fight western U.S. wildfires

LANSING (WKZO) -- Thirty-one Michigan Department of Natural Resources employees are battling wildfires in California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

The DNR employees are all trained as firefighters. Twenty are in Medford, Oregon, while the other eleven are serving in what the department calls "essential fire-line leadership positions" fighting other wildfires.

DNR officials note fire danger in Michigan is low, which allowed them to send the reinforcements out west.
