Tahoe City Kayak goes up in flames

Jason Kelley/Sierra SunTahoe City Kayak burns early Wednesday morning. Investigators are looking into the cause of the blaze that the owner said has "taken out" his retail shop.

Investigators are looking into a fire that burned Tahoe City Kayak early this morning.

The fire occurred sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. Wednesday at the shop located on Highway 28, said the shop’s owner Andrew Laughlan.

North Tahoe fire crews and a Placer County Sheriff’s arson investigator are on scene trying to determine the cause of the fire.

Amidst the charred wooden walls and melted and blackened kayaks, Laughlan was still trying to help the few customers who pulled off the road in hopes of renting a boat for the day on Wednesday morning.

“We still have enough boats to do tours and rentals,” Laughlan said. “Retail’s been taken out.”
