Washington, DC -- Federal funds were made available by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) today to help California fight the uncontrolled Louisiana fire burning in San Bernardino County. FEMA Director Joe M. Allbaugh approved the state's latest request for federal fire management assistance early this morning after learning that the 5,500-acre blaze had destroyed three homes and was threatening more than 200 other dwellings in the towns of Lone Pine and Wrightwood and surrounding areas near West Cajon Valley and David Ranch.
