Denver, CO -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved funds Saturday to help pay for fighting the Again fire in North Dakota. "This is the first time this year North Dakota has had to appeal to us for help with a wildfire," said FEMA Director Joe M. Allbaugh. "It pains me to hear of the damage on the Standing Rock reservation and in Grant County. I want people there to know that the Bush administration will continue to be there, supporting our state and local partners in this summer of fire, as long as it takes."
