Kildare Fire Chief Travis Harris reported the force left early Wednesday morning.

Harris said firefighters from Ranch Drive, Kildare and River Road gathered at 3:30 a.m. and loaded up on water and Gatorade. The Strike Force then traveled to Mooreland, where they attended a briefing and were assigned to duty.
