Washington, DC -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported today that the uncontrolled Bob's Trail fire has been added to the list of state wildfires designated for federal fire suppression assistance this week. FEMA Director James Lee Witt said the aid requested by the state was approved last night after the agency was informed that the fire posed a threat to 150 homes in Bastrop County. Fire suppression assistance was authorized earlier this week for the Purgatory fire in Comal County and the Saddleback fire in Wise County.
