BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota National Guard says it’s sending a helicopter and four soldiers to Washington state to help battle wildfires.

The military says two pilots, two crewmembers and a Black Hawk helicopter from the Bismarck-based 112th Aviation Regiment will be in Washington state for about 20 days.

The military says officials in Washington state sent a request for additional resources to fight wildfires after their own state resources were exhausted.

The Guard says several other states have responded with help.
