The National Fire Protection Association is holding their annual conference in Las Vegas this week. They say most wildfires around the country are started by people, and can be prevented.
The Firewise Communities Program encourages local solutions for wildfire safety by involving homeowners, community leaders, planners, developers, firefighters and others in creating fire-adapted communities - places where people and property are safer from the risk of brush, grass and forest fires.
