Only 50k acres?

I understand the beauty and serenity of this location. Having visited we were awe struck with it’s beauty. Such a production for 50k acres in 3 months. In 3 days here in the southwest we have over 122,000 acres gone. Something to ponder.

Too dramatic for no reason

Why did you have to make it all sensational with that stupid music and overly dramatic dialogue. Couldn’t make it through the second episode. Felt like I was watching a Fox News story on wildfire.

You missed some of the story

By not discussing an important problem—folks being permitted to build and live in dense forestland—you have failed to tell the complete story of wildfires. While I understand the firefighters risking their lives to save other lives, I do not understand their risking their lives to save the property of others who are testing the odds by settling in locations where fire is part of Nature’s land management plan.
