Washington, DC -- Federal funds have been made available by FEMA to help Florida fight another outbreak of wildfires located in the counties of Dixie, Lafayette, Madison and Taylor. The action brings to 10 the number of Florida fires that have been authorized for FEMA fire suppression aid this year. According to the agency, the aid requested by the state was approved late last week after it was reported that the 500-acre Perry Fire Complex, consisting of five uncontrolled fires, posed an immediate threat to 90 homes in the communities of Eridu and Shady Grove.
