Firefighters from Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department now battling Kern County fires

4 from here join Santa Clara, San Mateo county firefighters at Erskine Fire scene

Firefighters from the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department have joined others on a strike team consisting of 22 firefighters and five Office of

Emergency Services (OES) engines from around the Bay Area to battle the Erskine fire near Lake Isabella in Kern County.

LPFD Battalion Chief Aaron Lacey said four firefighters from his department rendezvoused at I-5 and Highway 152 with teammates from the Santa Clara and San Mateo county fire departments to start battling the fire.

These firefighters were deployed after Gov. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency for Kern County.

The team will be put to work in a statewide effort to prevent further human, property and environmental losses, Lacey said.
