Wallow Fire Aftermath
Here and Now's Steve Goldstein talks to two experts about flooding concerns and the aftermath of the largest wildfire in Arizona's history, as well as the volatile relationship between humans and fire.
Goldstein talks to Apache Sitgreaves National Forest deputy supervisor Jim Zornes about why flooding is a conern, the state of the terrain after the fire, and which stage recovery teams are currently in. Goldstein also talks to author and ASU professor Stephen Pyne about why wildfires get out of control, and how fire is and will always be part of the landscape.
