FEMA sets up assistance centers to help wildfire victims

Hundreds of thousands of dollars are on the way to Oklahomans devastated by wildfires. FEMA handed out $800,000 on Friday.

The money went to about 240 families that applied for assistance. For those who still need help, FEMA set up two centers for disaster assistance - one in Edmond and another in Seminole. There are loans, grants and even crisis counselors available.

Each family is eligible for up to $2,700. Shelee Bryant and her three kids lost everything in the Seminole wildfire. "I hope to get help replacing things, it wasn't my fault it burnt, you know."

The deadline to apply for help is March 13th. You apply over the phone by calling 1-800-621-FEMA.
