Last week we sent a writer to the Warm Springs fire. She talked to fire management officials, Bureau of Indian Affairs officials, wildland firefighters and community members. Then she wrote a feature for this week's issue (on stands late tomorrow!) about what she saw, heard and learned. She snapped a lot of photos.
Below are her images of the Sunnyside Turnout fire, which consumed 51,340 acres before it was 100 percent contained.
