Firefighters late Monday lined the devastated blue structure that once housed Farwest and ceremoniously carried out the bodies of two Coos Bay firefighters draped in American flags. Since the catastrophe offers of support from fire agencies statewide began flowing to Bay Area firefighters. A dozen Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue volunteers already are staffing the city's three fire stations and crews from Siuslaw Rural Fire District and Douglas County Fire District No. 2 also arrived Monday night to help relieve local firefighters and provide additional coverage.
In addition, fire crews with Medford, Clackamas County, Klamath Falls, Portland, Jackson County, Ashland, Roseburg0, Eugene, Springfield, Grants Pass and Rogue River also are scheduled to take over shifts through Dec. 3.
