Leesburg -- Two Lee County firefighters leave Wednesday to help with Katrina disaster relief. Firefighters Bobby Spencer and Clint Hickman are going to Mississippi.

The Georgia Mutual Aid Group asked Lee County for two volunteers, and Spencer and Hickman were chosen. They will relieve other first responders there, doing firefighter duties, and assisting in body recovery. Spencer said " The tornadoes we had in 1991 and 1993, and the floods of 1994 and 1998, everybody was willing to give us a helping hand. I feel like this is the opportunity to pay some of them back."

 Hickman said " It's a big mess, and whatever I can do to help clean it up, that's what I'm willing to do."

 The Lee County firefighters will take their Lee County turnout gear, fire fighting equipment, and breathing apparatus. They will be there for about a month.
