In 2011, the Wallow Fire in Arizona’s White Mountains burned almost 539,000 acres, becoming the largest megafire in the state’s history. The White Mountain Stewardship Project, which has thinned trees on more than 50,000 acres since 2004, is credited with protecting homes and businesses in several communities during the Wallow Fire. Homeowners Gary Fanning and Gina Murphy-Darling share their disparate experiences. This video was produced by The Nature Conservancy.
