KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Regional fire crews worked together to put out a fire late Saturday evening at a commercial building near Lake Tahoe’s North Shore.

North Tahoe Fire Protection District Engine 52 responded at about 10 p.m. to the building at 8465 Speckled Ave., near the intersection of Bear Street in Kings Beach, located high up in The Grid neighborhood.

There was heavy smoke in the area, and the fire was contained to a 500 square foot studio business inside the building, said Dave Zaski, the department’s public information officer.

The fire was “quickly knocked down,” he said Sunday morning, and no injuries were reported.

“The crews did a great job containing it to that one studio,” said Zaski, adding that the building houses several studios, and no other damage was reported.

Crews from the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District in Incline Village, Northstar Fire Department, Truckee Fire Protection District and Calfire also responded.

The fire’s cause is under investigation, Zaski said.
