You'd be forgiven this week for having a sense of horrible déjà vu. Orange skies. Smoke. Fire. Evacuations. We’ll hear about major losses in Berry Creek and talk with someone from CalFire about what it’s like for firefighters out on the line in this kind of heat. Plus, a pyrogeographer explains some of the differences in fire behavior between the Bear Fire and the Camp Fire. That’s all ahead.
