In a matter of hours - 260 were gone - and 400 families were paying for someone elses mistake.
For the Browns - 26 years went up with the 50-thousand acres. But they are not angry - the fire they say, was angry enough. GLORIA BROWN, RESIDENT: I think maybe Roy Weaver used bad judgement, but hes a human being and Im sure hes hurting, twice as much, 10 times, a 100 times more than we are.
Although Weaver was up front about taking responsibility for the fire - an old law may shield the federal government from liability. Lawsuits could take years - unless Congress acts first. REP. TOM UDALL, D-NM I think clearly this rests at the feet of the federal government and should be the federal government that steps up to the plate and says were going to take care of these losses.
In 1976, it did. Despite warning from geologists - the federal government built the Teton Dam on unstable ground. When it burst - Congress appropriated 200 million dollars to help residents rebuild.

In fact, the reprimand even recommended she lose her job. 1/8shot of document "termination"

Rankins says, "They ask me why do I want my hair like this.. and I said I seen it on a white person, and I thought it looked cute on them..... they said my hair was unnatural."
Rankins believes she's being targeted because she's an African-American with blond hair.
Sarah Lee says, "This is a copy of the employee appearance policy. It covers everything from personal hygiene and dress code to hair style... important guidelines when dealing directly with the public. But Rankins says her job was behind closed doors in the Inn's kitchen."
Still, the guidelines clearly prohibit "extremes in dyeing, bleaching and coloring" of all employee hair. 1/8Remark:shot of guidlelines
Jim Bradley, Colonial Williamsburg says, "The philosophy behind the appearance standard is that any person in the hotel company could become at any given moment a frontline employee.. a public contact person."
But Rankins insists she won't be back in the beauty parlor any time soon.
Rankins says, "Oh, no I'm not planning on changing my hair color.. maybe the style. Not the color because I like it."
