Trump denies California wildfire aid request in record year for blazes

(Reuters) - The Trump administration has denied California’s request for additional wildfire recovery relief, saying on Friday the September blazes, part of the state’s record-setting fire year, were not severe enough to be declared a “major disaster.”

State officials said they would appeal the rare rejection, which came after 4.1 million acres burned this year, shattering a previous record and causing $229 million of damage.

“We have a strong case that California’s request meets the federal requirements for approval,” state Office of Emergency Services spokesman Brian Ferguson said in an email.

The rejection was the latest in a string of clashes between President Donald Trump’s administration and the Democratic-led Golden State.

Trump has repeatedly blamed deadly wildfires on a failure by California to clear its forests of dead trees and debris and threatened to withhold federal assistance.

“They have massive fires again in California,” Trump said at a campaign rally in August. “Maybe we’re just going to have to make them pay for it because they don’t listen to us.”
