Salt Lake City, UT – As more than 300,000 acres burn in central Utah, we're talking about the nature of wildfire. The Milford Flat Fire is the largest in Utah's recorded history, and lives and homes remain at risk with only some 10% of it contained. Doug talks to author George Wuerthner and to former fire fighter and poet C.L. Rawlins about the the role these fires play in the natural - and in the developed - world.
