Burning Arizona [6.13.2011]

The last time eastern Arizona was ablaze like it was last week, Charlie Brown was right in the middle of it. He's a volunteer firefighter in Pinedale, a town burned by the Rodeo-Chediski fire in 2002. Charlie's home was lost, and he defied safety orders to help other people in his community. He talks about what it's like to see land burned, "black to black."
