What Can We Learn From the Rim Fire?

September 3, 2013

The Rim Fire raging near Yosemite National Park since August 17 has already destroyed nearly 200,000 acres and has become the 6th worst fire in California history. Firefighters have been using drones and backfire operations to control the inferno.

Scott Stephens, professor of fire science at the College of Natural Resources and other guests joined KQED's Forum to take a look at modern firefighting and prevention strategies, and discuss what can be done to avoid similar disasters.
