DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado is sending equipment to Texas to help battle the wildfires that have devoured nearly 1,400 homes.

Six C-130 aircraft equipped with fire fighting systems are on their way.

Four of them flew out from Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs on Saturday.

They will be used in the air attack against the fires.

This is the worst wildfire season in Texas’ history. Four people were killed and thousands were evacuated.

Since December, local and state firefighters in Texas have responded to more than 20,000 wildfires that have burned more than 3.5 million acres.
