I am also quite interested in finding out just how much $$$ this burn cost the taxpayers on a per acre basis. As the FS prepares a response, please include all planning costs involved such as NEPA and preparation of the burn plan. While you are at it don't forget the costs for bringing in the specialists from outside the area that include mileage, lodging, meals, and incidental expenses.
