WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Federal funds have been made available by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help Texas battle the uncontrolled Fischer fire located in Comal County. FEMA Director James Lee Witt said the state's request for federal fire suppression aid was approved early this evening immediately after it was reported that the fire posed a threat to some 100 homes in the town of Fischer. The fire had burned 1,200 acres of land and forced the evacuation of an estimated 200 to 300 residents at the time of the request.
