I'd say that's the least big deal- wildland firefighters work across state lines as a matter of course in other western states (including California! They'll send their people to Idaho as they can and vice versa, for instance), so that can be worked out within existing frameworks

Case and point; there are hot shot crews from Arizona working the Fergusson Fire near Mariposa and Yosemite.  Incidentally has anyone seen those fire pictures from
CA 140 at the Fergusson Slide?  Good thing the Merced River is pretty wide that it kinda acts like a natural fire break.

Well, he's giving up on this one (for now), pointing fingers at the state supreme court and elsewhere, rather than the inherent flaws (legal and otherwise) in his plan:
