Clark County Ranchers Get Fire Relief Funds


ASHLAND, Kan. (AP) — About five months after wildfires swept Kansas, ranchers in the hardest-hit county have received the second installment of federal funds needed for fencing replacement. Clark County ranchers will get about $18 million in federal funds for fencing lost when fires burned about 425,000 acres in March. Ranchers in the county got half of the $18 million shortly after the fire but the rest was delayed because of budget shortfalls. The rest of the funds arrived last week.
