PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer signed a Declaration of Emergency in response to the fast-growing Doce Fire, in Yavapai County.
The fire is burning through the Prescott National Forest, about 8 miles northwest of town.
The declaration is allowing $100,000 from the Governor's Emergency Fund to support emergency response and recovery efforts associated with the fire.
Funds disbursed by the Declaration will not reimburse homeowners for damage caused by the fire or evacuation costs.
The Declaration also calls for the Arizona National Guard to protect life and property.
FEMA has approved the State's request for a Fire Management Assistance Grant.
This will allow federal funding to reimburse 75 percent of the State's costs for fire suppression and related actions, such as evacuations and sheltering operations.
The Doce Fire is 0 percent contained, has burned over 6,000 acres, and is threatening numerous homes and communities.
