Albany -- Six Albany firefighters left Thursday morning to help fight the wildfires in Southeast Georgia.

GEMA called the Albany Fire Department last night to ask for help. The five men and one woman all volunteered to go for an expected nine days.

They took one pumper truck and one of the brush firefighting trucks with generators and other equipment that could be of use.

 The Albany firefighters will give relief and rest to the firefighters there for the last couple of weeks. Firefighter Eric Davis said "two weeks, everyday, and they need a break. That's what we really want to do, go and give them a break and help them put it out."

 When the Albany firefighters left,  they were headed to Charlton County to help protect structures threatened by the fire. But they could be reassigned where they are needed.
