Pile Burning to Continue, Weather Permitting

Weather and fuel conditions permitting, the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District anticipates pile burning at Diamond Peak and east of Altdorf Terrace and Lucerne Way beginning March 23rd through April 3rd.   

Smoke resulting from the pile burning 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.
