Prescribed burning continues on South Shore

Sun Staff Report

LAKE TAHOE ” Prescribed burning is planned today in the Kingsbury Grade area at South Shore Lake Tahoe, U.S. Forest Service officials said.

Forest Service Fuels Management crews will conduct the work through the week if favorable conditions continue.

Residents and travelers can expect to see smoke from prescribed fire project areas.

Other fire management agencies, state and local, may also be conducting prescribed fire activities during this period.

This and other prescribed fire projects are designed to reduce wildfire risks to communities and critical resources. 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.
