Fighting Fire in Drought Conditions

Hosted by

In Northern California, 60,000 acres of land are on fire. The so-called Rocky Fire is raging out of control northwest of Sacramento. But there are 20 other fires burning right now in California - most fueled by lightning strikes. More than 9,000 firefighters from across the country have been called in.
