BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Palm Beach County Fire Rescue) — Palm Beach County Fire Rescue is sending an Engine with 4 firefighters as part of a Strike Team to Collier County tonight to aid in fighting an intense fast moving brush fire. State of Florida Region 6 has requested seven Engine Strike Teams in total. Each Strike Team is comprised of 5 fire engines and 1 command vehicle.


Palm Beach County Fire Rescue is sending one engine to meet with two from Broward and two from Miami Dade counties as well as a Command Unit from the City of West Palm Beach to drive over this evening. The on- going brush fire activity has destroyed homes and continues to threaten surrounding communities, which initiated this immediate request for help from state resources.

The deployment is expected to last for 5 days.
