A firefighting crew based in Illinois is lending a hand in West Virginia in the battle against a wildfire in the New River Gorge National Park. The 20-person Midewin Interagency Hot Shot Crew is working to build a fire line to keep the fire from spreading beyond the 84 acres its already claimed in the national park. The Midewin crew is hosted by the Midewin National Trailgrass Prairie in Wilmington. The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
