Jeff Jardine: Feds' silence on Rim fire fuels mistrust in Tuolumne

The Rim fire began in the Clavey River canyon in mid-August and proceeded to destroy a giant chunk of Tuolumne County. By the time crews finally snuffed it out in October, it had incinerated 257,314 acres of Stanislaus National Forest, Yosemite National Park and private land, cost $127 million to put out and caused $797 million in damage to the ecosystem, according to various reports.
