(UNDATED) - Fifteen Indiana counties are getting a share of more than $210,000 raised through timber sales at state forests.

The Indiana Department of Natural resources says the counties will use about $63,000 of that revenue to give a boost to 116 rural and volunteer fire departments, particularly to improve their wildland firefighting capabilities.

Brown County is getting the largest share of the revenue, more than $64,000, followed by Harrison County, which will receive nearly $35,000. Morgan County will get nearly $25,000, Jackson County will receive about $24,000, Martin County is getting nearly $13,000, and Monroe County will receive more than $11,000.

Nine other counties are getting less than $10,000 each.

The DNR's Division of Forestry allocates 15 percent of timber sale revenue from state forests to counties where the harvests occur.
