There's an interesting article in the LA Times about logging and
fires.  It can be found (for the time-being, at least) at
la-na-logging17sep17013053.story?coll=la%2Dheadlines%2Dnation . 
(Watch out for URL-wrap; registration may be required).

The usual caveats about newspaper articles that deal with
scientific/environmental issues apply.
