Waycross - Congressman Jack Kingston announced Thursday that the state will be receiving some help to pay for the massive bill incurred by the Sweat Farm Road Fire that scorched over 100 thousand acres in Ware County earlier this year.

FEMA will give over six million dollars to help pay for the Georgia Forestry Commission's costs for labor, equipment, materials, food, and lodging.

The Sweat Farm Road fire was one of several fires that burnt nearly half a million acres in Georgia between April and July.

They cost the state 40 million dollars to put out and a 60 million dollar loss to the timber industry.
