Smoke in Tahoe Basin result of Caples prescribed burn
November 2, 2017
See smoke? Don’t worry — it’s not from a nearby wildfire.
The smoke currently in the Tahoe Basin is from the Caples prescribed fire operations, according to a press release from the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team.
For those with low tolerance for smoke, the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team recommends a list of precautions to follow in order to reduce exposure: stay indoors as much as possible and avoid physical exertion; close windows, doors and vents, and opt for re-circulating the air with fans and air conditioning; drink water, eat a balanced diet and rest; take medicines prescribed by your doctor.
