A team of 20 wildland firefighters from Delaware that went to Alaska to help fight a fire are expected to return home next week.

The firefighters have been battling the 85,000 acre Stuart Creek 2 Fire in North Pole. The Eastern Area Coordination Center estimates the blaze is 57 percent contained.

The team is expected to arrive in Harrisburg late Sunday night and then return to Blackbird State Forest near Smyrna on Monday.
