The Yakima Herald-Republic investigates the death of four U.S. Forest Service firefighters on July 10 in the Chewuch River Canyon, revealing "serious safety problems within the agency." The newspaper found that "commanders at the scene broke Forest Service rules in fighting the fire and followed a pattern of safety violations going back to the 1994 Storm King fire in Colorado that killed 14."
