Local firefighters battling the Crown Fire

Crews from the Central Coast are lending a helping hand at the Crown Fire.

A handful of firefighters from Santa Barbara County are already on the front lines.

The Lompoc Fire Department just sent a brush rig and a dispatcher down south to help, and they were ready to go at a moment's notice.

It is all part of the state's mutual aid system.

"We really couldn't function without it, we need to work together and we do so very well," said Stan Hart of the Lompoc Fire Department. "That's how we're able to get as many resources on a fire as we can, as quickly as possible."

Many of the crew members from Santa Barbara County just returned from another fire near Tehachapi.
