With the Paradise fire destroying an entire city last year, this is a timely reminder that wildfires are ignored at great risk. This Minnesota fire destroyed cities, charred humans into bones and sucked the oxygen out of the air so people suffocated while running away or cowering in basements. The connections of the timber business, railroads and fire make this great reading. The gruesome descriptions of how a massive fire can kill are eye-opening. The words of survivors are compelling.
