U.S. Attorney John W. Huber says in a statement the agreement "fully compensates the public for the expense of fighting the fire and restoring these public lands."
"As a career prosecutor and public servant, this privilege to represent our nation is the pinnacle of my career. I am deeply committed to advancing the Attorney General's priorities. I was proud to be one of the first U.S. Attorneys to launch a local anti-violence campaign inspired by his leadership," Huber said.
