Fire engulfs Tahoma residence on Tahoe’s West Shore
The North Tahoe Fire Protection District responded to a residential fire in Tahoma Tuesday night on the 500 block of McKinney Rubicon Springs Road.
“We had a fully engulfed, residential structure fire,” said North Tahoe Fire Protection District Chief Steve Simons.
Simons said the residence was a single-family home with a garage. Crews were on scene as of Wednesday, and the investigation remains open.
Simons said no further updates could be given as of Wednesday afternoon.
The North Tahoe Fire Protection District also responded to a small vegetation fire in the Carnelian Bay. Simons said the cause of the fire, which was limited to roughly a 10-square-foot area, has yet to be determined.
