COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Four military firefighting planes are being moved to Arizona from Colorado.

The National Interagency Fire Center said all four C-130s will be stationed at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway by Wednesday and ready to drop slurry on fires.

The planes were mobilized last month to fight fires in southern Colorado, including one that destroyed over 500 homes and killed two people.
