The federal government Thursday extended for two weeks the deadline for Woolsey Fire victims to apply for federal grants or small business loans.

Thursday had been the deadline for fire victims to apply for Federal Emergency Management grants and for Small Business Administration home or business loans.

The deadline was extended to Feb. 15.

Authorities said the state requested the extension due to the number of people applying for aid, indicating that some people "are still assessing their damage and need additional time" to complete the applications.
