Report: Biden Administration Not Fully Compensating Victims of Forest Fire That Federal Government Started


The Biden administration has told New Mexico forest fire victims to cover certain property damage expenses for a forest fire the U.S. government started, Reuters reported.

In April, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) mismanaged a controlled burn in northern New Mexico that ended up merging with another controlled blaze, resulting in over 341,000 acres of land being burned and 432 homes being destroyed.

In response, President Joe Biden announced in June that the U.S. government “is covering 100 percent of the costs… for the next critical months of recovery” during a visit to the state.

However, the vague declaration only covered debris removal and emergency protective measures and not full compensation for victims who lost property from the federal government-started Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon fire, Reuters
