Dixie Fire: SPECIAL COVERAGE (8/26)
The Dixie Fire is no longer the state's top priority wildfire. This week, the Caldor fire surpassed the Dixie fire in terms of Cal Fire's priorities for resources. Nevertheless, it continues to threaten communities throughout the North State.
In this half-hour, NSPR's Sarah Bohannon speaks with Wendi James, Homeless and Youth Services Liaison for the Plumas County Office of Education and Plumas Unified School District, about the living situations people are finding themselves in and what it means for the kids in the county.
Also, Lenya Quinn-Davidson, a fire advisor for the University of California Cooperative Extension, offers details on ways communities can prepare themselves for wildfires.
