Firefighters from Laguna Beach spent nearly a week battling wildfires some 60 miles away from their coverage area. Although the fires raging in Los Angeles County weren't a threat to Laguna, local firefighters were called in to help. It's all part of a statewide mutual-aid agreement among California fire agencies. Whether it is fighting a brush fire in the Inland Empire or sifting through floodwaters for hurricane survivors in the South, local firefighters give help wherever they are needed.
