Weather conditions permitting, the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District will continue pile burning through the end of February, north of Sweetwater Rd. and east of Tomahawk Trail, and east of Fairview Blvd., south of State Route 431.
Smoke resulting from the pile burns will affect the surrounding areas for approximately 48-72 hours. People that are smoke sensitive are advised to please stay inside and close their windows and doors as much as possible until the smoke dissipates.
We thank the community for your patience and understanding with the short-term smoke impacts, realizing that improving forest health and fire safety are the long-term benefits.
