PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona is sending personnel and equipment to help battle wildfires burning in Southern California.

Spokeswoman Tiffany Davila (duh-VILL'l-uh) of the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management says Arizona is sending 25 engines with their crews and additional personnel.

She says some personnel and equipment started leaving for California on Wednesday and that once they arrive they'll go where they're most needed.

The engines are being sent by the Arizona agency as well as local fire departments and fire districts.
