On Sunday, The Mercury News published "Homes in the fire zone: Risk growing as more people move to once rural regions,” which was reported by Lisa Krieger and delved into why California’s fire seasons seem to be getting worse, and why large areas once thought nearly immune from such risks are now recognized as quite vulnerable. 

Northern California was mentioned as having many at risk communities. This included the entire City of Chico that is considered to be in the Wildland Urban Interface, defined as where homes are built near or among lands prone to wildfire. 

North State Public Radio’s Marc Albert spoke with Lisa Krieger about her story.
