Fighting forest fires is burning a big hole in Virginia's pocket. Now, the federal government has decided to pitch in to help pay the costs for fighting fires in Virginia.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke Co./November 9]


The state budgeted 500-thousand dollars to fight fires this fiscal year, but has already spent about twice that ... mostly fighting recent blazes in southwest Virginia.
More than 800 fires have broken out since October 15th and charred more 8-thousand acres statewide.
The U-S Forest Service is charging Virginia 35-thousand dollars a day for sending fire crews from western states.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will likely cover 75-percent of that cost.
