Hailey, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) We're hearing a lot about flooding and debris following the Beaver Creek Fire.

The devastating fire has also taught us another lesson as we hear from Ketchum District Ranger Kurt Nelson.

"Wood shingles on a structure within a Wild land Urban Interface creates potential for houses to catch on fire and puts firefighters safety at risk; so I believe the fire chiefs are trying to garner interest to look at county ordinances to deal with the type of roofing materials on this interface," adds Nelson.
