Prescribed fire operations scheduled around Lake Tahoe

Five different agencies in the Tahoe region are scheduled to conducted prescribed fire operations starting Saturday, Nov. 4.

On the South Shore, operations are planned for upper and lower Kingsbury Grade, off Pioneer Trail near Marshall Trail and Powerline Road, north of Lake Tahoe Airport and south of Christmas Valley. On the West Shore, California State Parks officials hope to tackle a prescribed burn in D.L. Bliss State Park. And on the North Shore, operations are planned for the west side of Incline Village and west of the First Creek drainage.

All operations are dependent on the weather.

Smoke may be visible, as was the case earlier this week when smoke from the Caples burn — which is part of a multi-year ecological restoration project in the biologically diverse Caples Creek watershed — near Kirkwood inundated the Tahoe Basin.

Smoke from the planned operations could last through the week.
