LOS ANGELES (AP) - Twenty firefighters from California have returned to the United States after spending nearly a month battling wildfires in Australia.

The firefighters based at Angeles National Forest arrived at Los Angeles International Airport early Wednesday and were scheduled to reunite with their families at a nearby city fire station.

The 18 men and two women had worked with the Victoria Rural Fire Service to fight Australia's devastating blazes.

Angeles National Forest sprawls over more than 1,090 square miles of the San Gabriel Mountains, forming a wilderness backdrop to metropolitan Los Angeles.
