But it survived. Where once no fish swam, now over 65 species swim.
How the miraculous turnaround? By the concerted efforts of people who had seen their river burn enough times. People who took action and the protection of the river seriously. No, there are no more rivers in America at risk of combusting, thanks to environmental protection laws. But our problems are still many: dangerous levels of lead in drinking water and in paint in old houses, urban air degradation , injection-induced earthquakes , rising sea levels and more intense storms, to name a few.

Who says impossible they fill his mouth with ash, they quench him as if a man could be made steel. A crooked way the world wends, and the rivers, and the prophets. Go down and tell them what you have seen: that the river burned and was not consumed. Dave Lucas is an American poet and essayist.

Luckily, the 13th time was the charm, and the fire as well as the Time article spurred action at the federal level.
