Three members of a Santa Fe based fire crew are in California fighting the Camp Fire.

According to The Santa Fe New Mexican, Michael Martinez of Santa Fe is the leader of the Wildfire Support Team, which is a 30-person federally contracted crew.

On Friday, the U.S. Forest Service called him to help out.

Another member of the team, Christian Carter, tells the New Mexican they have been trying to clear brush around homes and trying to help contain the massive blaze.

They are scheduled to remain in California for another week.

A seven-truck, 25-person New Mexico task force is also in California fighting the Woolsey Fire.
