Provo, Utah -- The Provo Fire Department released dramatic photos Sunday of their team battling wildfires in Northern California.

Firefighters from numerous agencies throughout Utah traveled to California to assist in fighting the fires, all while the state remains largely locked down due to the coronavirus.

“They need help,” said Ryan Love with the Unified Fire Department last week while speaking with Fox 13. “California is in a state of emergency right now. There are too many fires there for their resources to handle locally."

Provo Fire Rescue commended the firefighters' bravery and work, saying "Strong work guys!"
