VICE News highlight Dan Jimenez and researchers in their Watch The Forest Service Burn Down a Forest for Science news piece.

"Dan Jimenez doesn’t get to do this very often. It’s almost unheard-of for researchers to get this close to such a massive fire: In a few hours, if all goes well, more than 2,000 acres of trees will be ablaze, in a controlled burn that will emulate the conditions and behaviors of naturally-occurring wildfires."
