A Las Vegas fire captain is assisting a group in Puerto Rico to install solar power systems. Capt. Richard Brit, who has been a firefighter for 17 years, has been working for a solar company in California. 

The first solar system was installed Oct. 13 at a fire station in San Juan. The second happened a few days later.

Capt. Brit is planning to go back to the island next week. He plans to help with the project until all 96 fire stations on the island have solar power systems.
