Wildfires blazing near you
90 year old family cabin threatened
Although the previous forest fires didn't burn down the cabin, he says the fire really took a toll on the trees. 'We replanted after the 1987 Complex fire, and will do so again. But the replanted trees within the worst parts of the '87 burn were just starting to look like a forest again, 27 years later,' he says. 'My son will be in his mid 30s and us in our 70s when it might look anywhere as beautiful as it did on August 16th. We can rebuild the cabin, but the forest is a lot tougher. '
