On the third episode of California Burning, we talk to those who work directly with fire - both deep in the forests, and closer to our communities. This includes a professor of fire ecology who runs the wildland fire lab at Humboldt State University, a couple different fire fighters, forest rangers, and a timber manager for a sustainable timber operation.
We’ll also hear about a group of locals who risked it all by going back into the Camp Fire after first being evacuated in an attempt to save their small gold-rush era community just to the west of the town of Paradise.
