Washington, D.C. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has made federal funds available for two more uncontrolled Oklahoma wildfires, bringing to three the number of state fires designated for assistance this week. The state's latest requests for FEMA fire suppression aid were approved yesterday after it was reported that populated areas were being threatened by the 4,500-acre Oakcliff Fire Complex in Logan County and the 1,000-acre Bristow Fire Complex in Creek County.
