New this morning... california is mobilizing the national guard to focus on wildfire prevention.

Julia vo the state will be pulling troops from the southern border as part of president trump's border protection efforts.

Next month - 110 troops will undergo 11 days of forest management training.

That includes thinning trees and using rakes and shovels to cut down fire fuels.

The national guardsmen will then be divided into five teams and stationed throughout the state.

We are working to learn if any troops will be placed locally.
