While April's wildfire loss numbers come rolling in, so does assistance for some of those hit the hardest.

Oklahoma State University Staff estimate cattle operation losses from the April wildfires exceed $26 million. That figure include an approximate $16.4 million for fence repair, $6.3 million for burned facilities and corrals and $1.6 million for emergency feed.

This help is made possible through a disaster declaration.
