FEMA helps with wildfire costs

September 4, 2007

Waycross - Georgia will get another four million dollars to cover the costs of those wildfires.

The FEMA money will go toward the Sweat Farm Road portion of the fire, which scorched over 100 thousand acres in Ware County.

In all, the fires burned nearly a half million acres in Georgia between April and July and cost the state 40 million dollars.

This is the second grant from FEMA. The first was for six million awarded last month.
