A burned stump among a forest of burned trees following the King fire in El Dorado County in October 2014. The fire burned nearly 100,000 acres and devastated a swath of the Eldorado National Forest the size of a major city, destroying 12 homes and 68 outbuildings. It shut down forest roads, burned through hiking trails and displaced hundreds of residents. Roughly 63,000 acres of the forest burned by the fire will reopen to the public today for recreation, including fishing, and permitted commercial activities.
