New Mexico governor calls for more U.S. help to respond to wildfires

New Mexico’s governor is asking for more federal help to respond to wildfires burning in the upstate, including one that’s the second-largest in state history and which authorities say destroyed hundreds of homes. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday that New Mexico needs more help than provided under the president’s recent disaster declaration. The response needed, including immediate funding for debris removal and “a full range of emergency protective measures,” is beyond the capabilities of the state and the federal government would have to bear 100% of the costs because part of the fire was ignited by embers blown by the wind. a prescribed burn in the Santa Fe National Forest, the governor said.
