Burned: Poor planning and tactical errors fueled a wildfire catastrophe | The Oregonian

I have an admittedly odd fascination of forest fires. Each spring and summer includes consistent discussion of the increase of fires in the PNW a la a retired firefighter for a father, an Eastern Oregon location near to my heart, and an inescapable notion that we can design a better solution. The Canyon Creek disaster is just one example of why a new take on this issue cannot come soon enough.
