This coming Monday is the start of the annual Burning Man festival. The week-long art and alternative culture event draws some 50,000 people from around the world to a desolate patch of Nevada desert. Attendees call themselves “Burners” - and the resourcefulness they bring to the festival is proving useful a long way from Burning Man. KCFR's Eric Whitney has the story of Burners Without Borders – a group of volunteers, including some from Colorado, who fill the time between festivals helping people in need.
