FROM THIS EPISODE
As they do after every round of wildfires, thousands of victims are promising to rebuild, but that will be more expensive than it’s been in the past. Since San Diego’s Cedar and Paradise fires in 2003, the cost of residential construction has been going up by as much as 35 to 45 percent.
Half the inmates in California’s Juvenile Justice System are about to be sent home—but not because they’ve served out their sentences.

Now, it’s up to the counties to try to do better.
