Many of the more than 460 firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service in Missouri who traveled west to battle the wildfires have returned home. They’ll soon be off again after resting for a few days.

Wiggins says many of those returning are saying the western wildfires are the worst forest fires they’ve seen in their careers.
