California's Rim Fire

Behind The Headlines

Authored by B.J. Hansen

The Rim Fire of 2013 in the Stanislaus National Forest had all the ingredients of a perfect drama, and that is why it became an international news story. It was an out-of-control raging fire that put thousands of homes at risk, ripped through portions of Yosemite National Park, and created concerns about the water supply for San Francisco. "California's Rim Fire: Behind The Headlines" is the culmination of in-depth interviews with several of the key players that responded to the fire and community members impacted. It is designed to paint a clear picture, for the first time, of the early efforts to stop the fire when it was only a couple of hundred acres. It also details what led to its explosive growth, the controversial investigation into the cause, how a community rallied together, and the divisive political debates it ignited.
