"And there is no end in sight."

Kudos to the Los Angeles Times for its first installment today (July 26) of a five-part series about wildfire. This installment discusses the increasing severity of the big fires, the rising costs of fighting the fires, and the industry that has developed to support the firefighters on the fireline.

From the article:

"A century after the government declared war on wildfire, fire is gaining the upper hand. From the canyons of California to the forests of the Rocky Mountains and the grasslands of Texas, fires are growing bigger, fiercer and costlier to put out. And there is no end in sight."

We encourage you to follow this series through to the final article. Here's the link to the first article in the series. Should you miss a day, head to the FUSEE website and we will have links to the articles in the "Fire News" portion of our website (www.fusee.org).

Happy reading.
