With a population of more than 1.8 billion, Kentucky is home to more than 500 million people and an economy that employs more than 100,000 people.
The state has been battling wildfires for almost two years.
The Kentucky Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has estimated that as many as 1.4 million acres have burned, leaving more than 40,000 homes and businesses without power.
But the damage from the fires has been largely limited to brush and grass.
The DEQ is trying to keep up with the growth of the fires by trying to protect areas of the state where they can’t be safely burned.
What’s at stake The DEXA says that about 30,000 acres have been burned.
The number of homes and commercial properties damaged by the fires is much higher.
Many of those homes and buildings are in rural areas that are likely to be more vulnerable than larger cities.
For example, the fire has caused damage to homes and business in rural counties that are home to the largest concentration of coal mines and power plants.
Kentucky’s fire department is trying, at its own expense, to protect a number of areas.
The agency says it is using a combination of manpower and equipment, including aerial observation and helicopter crews, to try to stop the spread of the wildfires.
But many of those efforts have been hampered by a lack of water and power.
Many fire fighters are also using their own equipment, often without training, and the agency says that its firefighters are being unable to reach some areas.
In the past two weeks, a number a firefighters have been hospitalized with respiratory problems.
The fire department says that some of the firefighters are in critical condition and some are in serious condition.
The Department of Health and Human Services has asked for federal funding to help it deal with the spread and fight the fires.
“The state is going to need a lot of help,” said DEQ Commissioner Jeff Stottlemyre.
“But the fact of the matter is, we can’t go out there and just fight.
We can’t just sit here and do nothing.
We have to come out and do something.”
Some of the biggest challenges facing the state are in the eastern part of the county of Boone and the western part of county of Warren.
Bosque County, which covers Warren, Boone, Boone and Warren, is home most of the coal mines in Kentucky.
It is the most heavily affected county by the wildfires, and many of the homes and structures are in areas that were heavily burned.
There are many roads and other infrastructure that were burned that are not accessible to firefighters.
One of the big challenges the county has had is that it has no power and no water.
But that is also something that the agency has to manage.
Statewide, a total of 2,600 counties are being monitored by the DEQ.
On Friday, Governor Matt Bevin declared a state of emergency for Kentucky.
He said that emergency declarations will allow the DEXAs emergency response teams to respond quickly to emergencies.
Bevin also said that he wants to take a few steps that would help the state get more water and other supplies, including making the state’s rivers more flood-proof.
