A team of five engines and 16 firefighters headed down to Orange County last night.
It's the second wave of crews from the Valley that were sent to provide some relief. Another group of firefighters from Fresno headed south on Sunday ahead of the red flag warnings.

"We move resources up and down the state non-stop. Yesterday, sending reinforcements ahead of a major wind event helped get them there faster. The fire grew a bit, so we're going down there to help out with some reinforcements," said CAL FIRE Battalion Chief Jeremiah Wittwer.
In total, Fresno County has sent more than ten engines and two dozen firefighters to southern California to support Orange County crews.
