The team, consisting of more than 80 LA County Fire and volunteers with Urban Search and Rescue, were in Turkey to support rescue and aid efforts for some of the regions hardest-hit by the magnitude-7.8 quake that hit on Feb. 6.

"Even though we're home, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people affected by the earthquakes," the department wrote in a post online.  

A new 6.4-magnitude earthquake on Monday killed three people and injured more than 200 in parts of Turkey that were laid waste two weeks ago by the massive quake that killed tens of thousands. Officials said more buildings collapsed, trapping occupants, and several people were injured in both Turkey and Syria.
