Setting Small Fires to Avoid Larger Ones; First Signs of Life at Burned Sonoma County Lake

Today, we’ve got two reports about the aftermath of October’s fires. They come to us through our partnership with KQED’s California Report.

First, an independent state watchdog called the Little Hoover Commission says California needs to re-examine how it manages the state’s forests to minimize the risk of catastrophic wildfires.

One key recommendation?  It may be smart to use fire as a tool – with controlled burns helping to avoid firestorms like the ones we experienced last year. Molly Peterson has that story.

Then we'll hear from Tiffany Camhi, who visits a local lake where signs of life were peeking out of the burned landscape.
