Destined to Burn Evacuation Planning

Destined to Burn Evacuation Planning

In this April 17, 2019, photo, a pedestrian crosses Washington St. one of the few roads leading into and out of the Gold Rush community of Sonora, Calif. Residents of Paradise, Calif., who were forced to flee from the Camp Fire, became caught in a nightmare traffic jam on narrow winding roads as they tried to evacuate the area. Sonora faces the same kind of issues of too few escape lanes for too many people in vehicles. The 2018 catastrophe illuminated the grim reality that road systems throughout the state are not designed to handle a sudden evacuation. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
