This investigation showed that firefighting systems are overburdened nation-wide. The reporter examined the Forest Service's accounts and found that money was grossly mismanaged -- she shows how system abuse contributes to both the high price of firefighting and also the ineffectiveness of firefighting systems. The reporter uses a recent fire in Lincoln, MT as an example to illustrate the flaws of the system.
