SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown joined leaders of Cal OES, the Office of Emergency Services, Wednesday morning for an overview of efforts to squelch some 17 fires burning around California.


Brown thanked members of Cal Fire and supporting agencies and he also acknowledged inmate crews helping in the firefight.


A state of emergency has been declared in several counties including Shasta and Mendocino.


The governor also talked about sparing no cost to win this battle.


“Whatever resources are needed, we're putting them there. We did allocate money in the budget for these kinds of contingencies and that money is there to do exactly what it’s doing,” Brown said.
