Pile burns, chipping services on tap for Incline, Crystal Bay

The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District is gearing up for defensible space evaluations, tree marking and chipping services for the 2016 season.

Defensible space evaluations and chipping services will begin May 2. The Fire District will notify folks who have requested chipping services prior to visiting their homes.

Please note, it is mandatory that the checklist items on the Defensible Space Checklist are completed prior to obtaining a tree removal permit.



To request a defensible space evaluation or chipping service, call 775-831-0351, ext. 8118, and leave your name, phone number, address and service requested. You may also sign up online by visiting http://www.nltfpd.net, go to “fuels management,” then “curbside chipping.”

Also, this week the Fire District was scheduled to start pile burning in the Crystal Bay area and along Geraldine Drive. Burns, weather permitting, were scheduled to take place April 12 through April 14.



The piles are located on Nevada Division of State Lands property, approximately 2.5 acres in size. Smoke from the burns will affect the surrounding areas for approximately 24-72 hours.

People who are smoke sensitive are advised to stay inside and close windows and doors as much as possible until smoke dissipates. For further information, or to be added to the district’s smoke sensitive notification list, call the Fire District at 775-831-0351, ext. 0, or visit http://www.nltfpd.net.
