On The Verge Of Fire Season

It will happen; the only question is: how much?

Bob Schumacher and Daniel Berlant survey what could be a rough fire season ahead.

Southern California is adjusting to the realities of a year-round fire season. 

So far, we do not have to face that reality where we live. 

But this fire season, which could be declared at any time (already underway south of the state line) , threatens to be a rough one in Oregon and California. 

It comes after several years of low rain and snowfall, and arrives during a drought. 

We gather fire officials from both sides of the state line to talk about preparations for fire season 2014.
