Albany -- Another six Albany firefighters left Friday to fight wildfires in southeast Georgia.

They're relieving these six who just returned from a week battling the flames.

The Albany firefighters say they didn't get to fight fires as much as they would have liked, t they were glad to have been able to help. Lt. Thomas Bridges  "it was an experience. We learned a lot over there about wild land firefighting. Something we don't have, wildfires like that here. Haven't yet, and hope we don't."

Six more Albany firefighters took two trucks and left Friday for Charlton County. They'll work there for a week.

The Albany Gospel Chapel collected items such as energy bars,water,  and eye care items for the firefighters and sent them with the Albany team.
