A pair of wildfires burning across the state have claimed more than 15,000 structures and at least 80 lives, breaking records and causing massive amounts of damage to communities, families and businesses. And while some have already made pledges to rebuild, others believe they should take a step back. Experts in academia, wildfires and urban planning say the state should explore other ways to deal with the fires, rather than simply rebuilding in the same affected areas.
