Update: Wildfires

With over 650,000 acres burned by 7,000 fires, wildfire in California this year is the worst it has been since the early 1990s. The same can be said for all other states in the West. How bad is it? A report from the U.S. Forest Service said expansion of housing near forests in the region known as the wildland-urban interface (WUI) is a big contributor to the high cost of wildfire. Between 2000 and 2010 the number of structures in the WUI grew by 5%. In 2010 the number of structures in the WUI hit 44 million. That is one in every three houses in the country. more
