A firefighting team from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will deploy to help fight the wildfires in California.

According to an announcement from Governor Andrew Cuomo, the crew of 20 employees and volunteers left on Sunday morning, and is expected to aid in efforts for two weeks. All travel and administration costs will be paid by the U.S. Forest Service or reimbursed to New York State, according to the release.

The DEC had sent fire-fighting aid earlier this year to Montana.
