Sept. 8, 2020, was a challenging time for Southern Oregon. Like every place else, we were in the middle of a pandemic and and on top of that, a drought.  That Tuesday after Labor Day, the first day of school for many of the school districts in Southern Oregon.  It all began with record winds whipping down the Valley from south to north. Join Michelle Corradetti and Alan Harper as they document the “Almeda Fire – Rising From the Ashes.”

In Part 1, Corradetti and Harper share how the fire destroyed, thousands of homes and businesses. In the Rogue Valley, specifically, in the small towns of Phoenix and Talent Oregon.

In Episode 2, Chris Chambers drives down Highway 99 in the thick of the fire: “Driving down 99 will probably be one of my most vivid memories of the fire and just everything is burning on multiple, both sides of 99 between Ashland and through Talent,” he said.
