When fire risk soars with developments, can governments control the costs?

Residents have begun to trickle back into the Black Forest neighborhood of Colorado Springs, Colo., where last week a wind-whipped wildfire forced the evacuation of about 40,000 people. Having claimed more than 500 structures and two lives, it is considered the most destructive fire in the state's history. Given the extent of the damage, it may take time for another, equally important truth to sink in: The destruction could have been far worse.
