OAKLAND, Calif. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has authorized the use of federal funds to assist the state of California in combating the Zogg Fire burning in Shasta County.

On Sept. 28, 2020, the state of California submitted a request for a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) for the Zogg Fire.

At the time of the request, the fire threatened 1,600 homes in and around the communities of Igo, Ono, Platina, West Redding, West Valley, and Happy Valley. The fire also threatened a power transmission line, four fire stations, the Shasta County Dump, and portions of the Sacramento River watershed, according to FEMA.

The FEMA regional administrator said it approved the state’s request on Sept. 28, as the fire threatened to become a major incident.

FMAGs provide federal funding for up to 75% of eligible firefighting costs. The Disaster Relief Fund provides allowances for FMAGs through FEMA to assist in fighting fires that threaten to cause major disasters.

Eligible costs covered by FMAGs can include expenses for field camps, equipment use, materials, supplies and mobilization, and demobilization activities attributed to fighting the fire.
