‘Elemental: Fire in the Neighborhood’ explores growing risk of wildfire

As increasing numbers of homes are being built in the wild urban interface in Arizona, California and Colorado, the risk that forest fires pose to people and property increases, too. The multimedia collaboration Elemental: Covering Sustainability investigates the issue Friday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. on Arizona PBS.

About Elemental: Covering Sustainability
