News Release from DLNR, Nov 15, 2023

(HONOLULU) – CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” prime-time television’s longest continuous series, looks at the Lahaina fire on this Sunday’s broadcast (Nov. 19).

Michael Walker, State Protection Forester with the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) was interviewed for the program on Oct. 4 in a field of invasive grass above Lahainaluna High School.

Producers sought out Walker for his expertise in wildfire prevention and suppression and he explained the connection, among other issues, between invasive grasses and wildfire.

Locally, “60 Minutes” airs on KGMB-TV (Hawaii News Now) at 6 p.m. Sundays.  Walker will also be featured in an extended “60 Minutes Overtime,” digital-only story.
