After a week of search-and-rescue efforts in flooded areas of Colorado, scores of Utah firefighters are heading home Friday.
Utah Task Force One which includes 76 firefighters and other personnel from Salt Lake City Fire, Unified Fire and Park City received deployment orders early on Sept. 13, according to Unified Fire Capt. Clint Mecham.
After a week of contacting residents in the canyons above Boulder, Co., Mecham said the team is no longer needed. They left Colorado at about noon and were expected back in Salt Lake City at about 9 p.m.
