Heather Hansen discusses "Wildfire: On the Front Lines with Station 8"

Journalist Heather Hansen spent a season embedded with the Station 8, Boulder firefighters to research her new book "Wildfire". Join her to learn what that was like and hear what she learned about the increasing frequency and intensity of these devastating fires.
