Prescribed fire operations continue on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore

North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District and the U.S. Forest Service expect to continue prescribed fire operations on Lake Tahoe's North Shore Tuesday, Jan. 3, if conditions are favorable.

Operations may take place on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe near Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Carnelian Bay and Incline Village, according to a press release from the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team. Smoke from prescribed fire operations could be visible for several days after an ignition depending on the project size and environmental conditions. Smoke sensitive individuals are encouraged to reduce their exposure by staying indoors if they are in a smoke affected area.

Residents can receive notifications regarding prescribed fires by sending an email to pa_ltbmu@fs.fed.us. Updated information also can be found by calling the local fire information line at 530-543-2816
