New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) Engines A5 and B10 arrived in Minnesota this week as part of a NE Region pre-position resource. They are currently in Hibbing, Minn. for initial attack along with staging as an extended attack resource for other DNR Areas in the Region.

In the last week, crews and resources from 12 different states have assisted in firefighting efforts in Minnesota. Thanks to all those traveling from out-of-state for supporting Minnesota wildland firefighters in keeping our communities safe.
