FEMA reimburses Texas nearly $48M after wildfires


Texas has received nearly $48 million in federal funds as reimbursement for some firefighting costs during 2011 wildfires that blackened millions of acres.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Wednesday announced the recent awarding of the money.

FEMA says the reimbursement involves fire suppression costs during wildfires that burned in 168 counties and destroyed more than 1.3 million acres.

The work involved the Texas A&M Forest Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. FEMA's contribution represents a 75 percent federal cost share.

1. Not much publicity on this

All the right wing news carried FEMA's refusal to pay for that chemical plant explosion in TEXAS,
but when FEMA does something good it doesn't make FOX and friends?
