DENVER - Two Colorado firefighters from North Metro Fire's Wildland team have traveled to fight the massive fires in the Pacific Northwest.
The department said one firefighter was sent to assist at the Carlton Complex Fire in Washington State and the other was sent to the Waterman Complex Fire in Oregon. As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, the Waterman Complex Fire was estimated to cover 12,520 acres and the Carlton Complex Fire 243,291 acres.
Since the containment of Waterman Complex is now estimated at 75 percent, the firefighter who was sent there has been shifted to Oregon, where the fire is just 16 percent contained.
