Fire burns cabins near Cisco Grove

Two cabins and one acre were burned in a fire that began late Sunday night west of Cisco Grove, a spokesperson from Tahoe National Forest confirmed.

The fire was first reported at 11:30 p.m. on Luken Road in a neighborhood of about 20 vacation cabins north of Interstate 80.

Crews from CalFire, Tahoe National Forest, Truckee, Squaw Valley and Washington Ridge responded to the blaze, said Ann Westling, spokesperson for the Tahoe National Forest.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is still under investigation, Westling said.

Many of the cabins were built in the 1920s and sat on post and pier foundations, said Robert Ford, a resident of Concord who owns a 1939 A-frame on Luken Road.

“There is a lot of dry vegetation that could burn very quickly,” Ford said. As of 11:15 a.m. Monday, it was unclear if Ford’s cabin was still standing.

Sunday afternoon, an electrical fire caused a miner’s cabin east of Nevada City to burn to the ground.
