Redding City Leaders Consider Fire Fuel Management
No one will soon forget the Carr Fire's destructive sweep into Redding in late July. 270 homes inside the city limits went up in smoke, hundreds more outside of town.

If created, the district would have taxing power to raise money for the clearing of brush and other fire fuels. Redding City Manager Barry Tippin joins us to explain the finer points of the proposal, and what happens next.
