Forest Service: Prescribed burn planned today near Cave Rock
The U.S. Forest Service fuels management crews will conduct prescribed fire
hand pile burns today on 15 acres of urban lots in the Logan Shoals
area at Tahoe’s East Shore, south of Cave Rock.
Depending on conditions, this project may continue through Wednesday. Residents and travelers can expect to see smoke from prescribed fire project areas.
This and other prescribed fire projects are designed to reduce wildfire
risks to communities and critical resources, Forest Service officials said.
Smoke management is part of every prescribed fire burn plan, and efforts will be taken to reduce actual or potential smoke impacts on community areas.
