Ep. 5Why the “Labor Day Firestorm,” Was So Historic, With Fire Meteorologist Nick Nauslar

he Big Hollow Fire—and Mt. Rainier, St. Helens and Adams—from the air just a few days after the so-called “Labor Day Firestorm.”

On this episode, guest Nick Nauslar—a fire meteorologist at the National Interagency Fire Center—explains what contributed to the so-called “Labor Day Firestorm,” that devastated the Northwest and Northern California on the week of September 6. Nick discussed all the factors that made this conflagration so historic, and also discussed how climate change—which took a lot of the blame in national media—played only a small part in what became one of the worst weeks of fire in US history.
