Governor John Hickenlooper signed a disaster declaration today for Custer County. The order frees about $3.5 million for fire suppression and recovery efforts related to the Wetmore fire.
The money will come from the Disaster Emergency Fund. State law does not allow people who have lost homes and property to get reimbursement from that fund.
