Wildfire Comeback

Liane visits Rollie Noem, director of Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota where a wildfire 12 years ago destroyed 17,000 acres of forestland. As fires in the Black Hills and around the country blaze through millions of acres of land this summer, Noem talks about how the fire-ravaged area of his park has recovered in the past dozen years.
