Destined to Burn: Wildfires Threaten California -- Are We Prepared?

After the Camp Fire, several California news organizations, including the USA TODAY Network, came together to examine critical issues surrounding wildfires in the state.

The goal was to shed light on the problems, point to possible solutions and empower Californians to hold their leaders accountable and protect their own families and communities.

The result was the Destined to Burn series, stories written in partnership with The Sacramento Bee, Chico-Enterprise Record, Associated Press and the Record Searchlight’s sister papers in the USA TODAY Network.
