John N. Maclean - The Esperanza Fire: Arson, Murder, and the Agony of Engine 57

Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 1:00 pm
In 2006 a five-person firefighting team battling the Southern California Esperanza fire was killed in the line of duty. This was the first wild-land engine-crew fatality, and the man who set the fire was convicted of murder. Maclean, a longtime journalist and author of Fire on the Mountain, chronicles the blaze and the subsequent trial, and points out that wildfires have grown more intense, destructive, and expensive.
