CA BURNING EP4 Jim and Calli jane Open ForestOn the fourth episode of California Burning, we focus on the issues surrounding fires where the urban and wild spaces meet. We hear from people who have experienced some of the most tragic fires in California’s history from the Thomas Fire that caused lethal debris flows in Santa Barbara, the Tubbs Fire that ravaged neighborhoods Santa Rosa, and the Camp Fire which destroyed over 19,000 homes in the town of Paradise. We also join up with a forest thinning operation in Magalia that slowed down the Camp Fire - and made it possible for firefighters to save much of the town and protect the area’s water supply from fire contamination.

Hear California Burning Sunday morning at 10 am on KRCB FM Radio 91.
