Dozens of Oklahoma's volunteer firefighters are home from the wildfires in the west.

So far, eleven Oklahoma crews have been sent to several states to help in the firefighting efforts, nationwide.

Wednesday afternoon, we met up with volunteers from the Creek Nation. They're returning from Utah where the Big Wash blaze has been burning for the past two weeks.

Four more crews from Arkansas are scheduled to help in the Colorado wildfires this week. It's part of an inter-agency partnership between area tribes and the US Forest Service.
