Denver, CO -- The Burn Canyon fire, which has been burning since Saturday near Norwood is the latest to qualify for suppression assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA approved a Fire Management Assistance Grant Monday evening after state officials asked for help to cover the costs of fighting the blaze. At the time of the request, the fire reportedly was threatening about 65 structures with little containment.
