In 1910 the U.S. was hit by the largest wildfire in the country's history, which burned an area the size of Connecticut over the course of a weekend. This episode of Fresh Air discusses the fire, and also has some great tales about Teddy Roosevelt wrestling and skinny dipping (not at the same time).

This episode is no longer available on itunes, but you can listen now.
