Prescribed fire activity today
U.S. Forest Service fuels management crews will continue mop up and patrol the Cathedral and 64 Acres area pile burn projects from earlier this week.
Although periodic smoke may be visible, no new Forest Service ignitions will take place on the California side of the basin on Thursday.
On the Nevada side, crews will be conducting scattered urban lot pile burns in the Cave Rock Estates area. Travelers and residents can expect to see smoke from this project area.
Be advised other agencies, including California State Parks, California Tahoe Conservancy and local fire protection districts are conducting prescribed fire activities during this period.
Sugar Pine Point State Park is planning an eight acre understory burn for today, pending favorable weather conditions.
