OKLAHOMA CITY -- Individuals and businesses in nine Oklahoma counties that suffered losses because of wildfires will get some help from the federal government.

Governor Brad Henry announced Friday that the White House has approved disaster aid for Carter, Cleveland, Grady, Lincoln, McClain, Murray, Oklahoma, Payne and Stephens counties.

About 270 homes and businesses were damaged and more than 100,000 acres were burned when fires erupted April 9th.

    People should have insurance, so my tax dollars can go to better use. I think that it is dispicable that people will not have to initive to obtain insurance. It protects your investment and helps you move on. Tax dollars should be spent on roads, fire depoartments, schools, etc. Gov. owned objects. Not someones home or bently.
