WASILLA, Alaska The night of June 3, 1996, Tonia Julian was just leaving her log home on Stepan Lake to shop for a bike for her 5-year-old grandson. As she and her husband, Jim, stepped outside, she looked up and saw a giant, mushroom-shaped cloud of smoke looming just north of her home.

She knew right away it was a forest fire.
