OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Fire Department (OFD) is providing aid to the department in Fremont as they battle historic flood conditions.

One battalion chief and four Omaha Firefighters left for Fremont this morning to serve a 24-hour shift.

They will respond to "all fire, EMS, and rescue calls within the city of Fremont" and will be relieved on Thursday morning by another OFD crew of five firefighters.

OFD says operations in Omaha will continue as normal and they expect to support the Fremont Fire Department until the end of the week.
