As wildfire season winds down, prescribed burns can fend off future blazes in Mountain West

Wildfire season is winding down across much of the Mountain West as cold weather moves in. But it's the perfect time to set controlled, or prescribed, fires to burn unwanted dead trees and underbrush that fuel larger wildfires.

Madelyn Beck with the Mountain West News Bureau, joined Idaho Matters to talk about her reporting.

Frankie Barnhill is the Senior Producer of Idaho Matters, Boise State Public Radio's daily show and podcast. She's always interested in hearing surprising and enlightening stories about life in the West. Have an idea for Idaho Matters? Drop her a line!
