On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation about the devastating fires in California. Dozens of fires across the state have destroyed hundreds of structures, forced hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate, and left millions without electricity. State officials warn that the fire season is far from over.



Two dozen fires have burned almost 200,000 acres of wild and urban spaces in Northern California, destroying more than 5,700 structures and killing at least 34 people.
