AUSTIN, Texas — As raging wildfires continue to devastate California and the West Coast, Gov. Greg Abbott announced today that he's sending some help.

Nearly 190 firefighters, 50 fire trucks and 10 command vehicles have been deployed to California.

That help will be provided from 56 different fire departments across Texas.

This is in addition to resources that were already sent back in August.
