DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado is getting some help paying for last summer’s busy wildfire season.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded the state nearly $2 million.

The money will be given to state and local agencies. It will be used to help cover firefighting costs for the High Park Fire in Larimer County. That fire west of Fort Collins burned 259 homes.
