Congressman Jim Gibbons announced Tuesday that the state of Nevada will be receiving federal grants for fighting at least three wildfires.

The fires getting assistance are the Suzie Fire in Elko County, the Oregon Fire Complex in the North Valleys, and the Linehan Fire Complex in Lyon and Storey Counties near Moundhouse.

FEMA allocates the money to help control wildfires they think will threaten to create a major disaster. So the government will be responsible for 75 percent of the final bill on fighting all three of those fires.
