A number of Bay Area firefighters from around the Bay Area are on their way to Ventura County to help fight the Springs Fire, an Alameda County fire official said today.

The Alameda County Fire Department sent a total of 10 firefighters to the Southern California fire, which has consumed more than 10,000 acres and is threatening homes in some communities, according to Alameda County Deputy Chief Dave Lord.

The crews left this morning between 4 and 6 a.m. and are expected to arrive some time after 2 p.m.

Around 30 engines were also sent from the rest of the nine Bay Area counties, Lord said.
