Governor Mary Fallin won her appeal to FEMA to offer aid to wildfire victims in Cleveland County.

Nearly 300 homes there burned last month, but the county was originally denied any federal funds.

Governor Fallin's appeal was granted Thursday.

She also appealed rejections for Payne and Oklahoma Counties, but both of those were once again rejected.

Hardest hit Creek County was granted FEMA assistance more than a month ago.
