By Tribune Media
The Camp Fire of November 2018 was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history, to date. It killed dozens of people, destroyed thousands of buildings and nearly razed the entire town of Paradise. In this first episode of FIRE and ICE, we hear from firefighters who came face to face with this inferno and how they helped shelter those who were in danger, trying to escape the flames. We explore the lessons learned and some of the questions surrounding this historic tragedy. How did management of our forests play a role? How much can be attributed to climate change? Will this happen again? Ali Wolf of KTXL-TV in Sacramento reports.
