The long, difficult task is beginning across the state to add up the costs from all the Kansas wildfires. "We have seven counties that have qualified, and we've gotten federal support in what we call fire management assistance grants," Major Gen. Lee Tafanelli, Kansas Adjutant General, said Monday. "And that's really there to help those first responders, those other fire departments who have come in to provide resources and support to help them recover, if there are any losses of equipment or any of their support stuff." Tafanelli said teams made up of local, state and federal officials are going into affected counties to assess fire damage, "to collect all of the data and information that's going to be necessary to be put together the documentation that we need for a major presidential declaration disaster that Governor Brownback will submit." Tafanelli doesn't think there'll be any problem for the state to reach the damage threshold to trigger federal assistance. That amount, he said, is $4.1 million.

He said the state should qualify for the Federal Public Assistance Program. That program assists local, county and state government entities with losses. The damage assessment teams will examine such things as roads, bridges and fire equipment.

The data collection process could take a month or more. It must be collected so Governor Sam Brownback can make an application for a Presidential Disaster Declaration.

Brownback signed a final disaster declaration Monday covering 20 counties, following wildfires that burned more than 1,000 square miles of the state. Brownback made an initial disaster declaration verbally on March 5, and the final document covers fires that started March 4.

One death and 11 injuries were attributed to the fires. The state said Monday that more than 40 homes and an unknown number of outbuildings were destroyed.

The state also said three bridges in Clark County and one in Meade County were destroyed. An unknown number of livestock died.
The counties listed in declaration: Barber, Cheyenne, Clark, Comanche, Ellis, Ellsworth, Ford, Harvey, Hodgeman, Lane, Lincoln, McPherson, Meade, Ness, Pratt, Reno, Rice, Rooks, Russell, & Seward.

Let the healing begin. #gatlinburg #spring #regrowth #wildfiredamage

The sun finally came out for us as we reached Wayah bald Monday afternoon. #appalachiantrail #walkinthewoods #wayahbald #wildfiredamage

We took a drive through Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg last week to see the wildfire damage. This is one of our favorite areas to explore and it was absolutely heartbreaking to see how much was actually destroyed. 😢😢😢🌳🌲⛰ .

I had a great time joining my good friend @plugitinontheat on his 47th hike to complete the #fastestgsmnp900miler

Spending time with these guys makes going out into God's creation all the better. It was nice to be back on top of LeConte, as it was my first hike in the Smokies back in 2004. The fire damage was sad, but nature will recover.

3/18/17- Trillium Gap, LeConte Lodge, Rainbow Falls, Old Sugarlands Trail. Total: 19.3mi hiked.

As more Kansas fires are brought under control, emergency management officials are getting a clearer picture of the widespread damage.

About 626,000 acres have burned in the series of fires that began over the weekend, the Kansas Division of Emergency Management reports. But that figure may rise if new fires flare up.

Clark and Comanche Counties account for around 502,000 of the total acres, setting a record for the most widespread single fire in the state. The previous record was 312,427 acres burned in Barber and Comanche Counties during the Anderson Creek fire of 2016.

Fire crews continue to contain fires in Clark, Comanche, Reno, and Rooks Counties. Since March 4, fires have been reported in 23 Kansas counties.

The Clark County Attorney Allison Kuhns at least 20 homes and 34 other structures were lost.
Airspace remains restricted in a 16-mile radius over Ashland in Clark County to allow Kansas National Guard. Two additional Army Reserve Chinook helicopters arrived in Dodge City Wednesday night to begin operations.

The fires killed an unknown number of livestock in several counties. The Bureau of Waste Management is providing guidance to livestock owners for the disposal of dead animals. For information, click here or call Ken Powell (785) 296-1121.

The Kansas Livestock Association is working with private donors to provide hay for cattle in counties that suffered extensive loss of grazing lands and baled hay.

Gov. Sam Brownback declared a state of disaster emergency March 5.
