Weather and fuel conditions permitting, the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District anticipates pile burning in various locations throughout Incline Village, including the Diamond Peak Ski Resort area and east of the Ponderosa Ranch area beginning next week.
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.
