A Nebraska search and rescue team is just about done with its tireless work in the Lone Star State.

Nebraska Task Force 1 is starting to demobilize after a week and a half in Texas helping flood victims.

The urban rescue group could be back home Tuesday night.

The 80 member task force made up of mostly of firefighters from Omaha, Papillion and Lincoln. They assisted with 1,500 rescues and saved 120 pets. 

However, there is the possibility they may be deployed to assist with efforts on Florida with Hurricane Irma.
