When fire breaks out, who pays?

County, state, feds all take part, and it ain’t cheap
A myriad of government agencies cover firefighting costs such as these Type 3 fire engines that came from California last year to fight the Weber Fire.
Costs for air support, such as this air tanker and helicopter fighting the Weber Fire in 2012, are among the numerous factors leading county officials to take a more rigorous look at their firefighting expenses.
An agreement among several local governments signed in April provides a more-structured process for allocating firefighting expenses such as payments to private operators of air tankers like this Neptune Aviation Air Tractor unit operating last year out of Durango-La Plata County Airport.
