(Before It's News)

The Cottonwood fire ravaged thousands of acres, and while the recovery has started, there is still a lot of work to do.

Representative Kristi Noem sat down wth a number of individuals who lost cattle, pasture, hay, and fencing from the blaze. She heard some of the issues they are facing and also gave them advice on how do deal with the government while the recovery process continues.

Rep. Kristi Noem says, “I’m here today to meet with the families that were affected by the Cottonwood Fire that happened a little while ago, and really visit with them to see what kind of help they need. I know they’re already aware of federal programs that can be helpful. Other groups such as the Stockgrowers, the Cattlemen have been very helpful in getting them assistance, but I want them to know that if they run into any problems, or have issues with any federal agencies that our office is here to help as well, and mainly to let them know that we’re thinking about them, we’re supporting them, and that we’re a resource that they can call on.”

Noem, who grew up on a farm says the fire not only resulted in a large monetary loss, but it left emotional holes, especially for those who lost cattle.
