Five homes and an outbuilding were destroyed Saturday afternoon on Lake Tahoes West Shore when a house fire above Sunnyside forced evacuations in the Tahoe Park/Talmont area.No injuries have been reported in the Washoe Fire, but the wind-driven blaze sparked fears of another major wildfire in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Saturdays fire is about 20 miles north of South Lake Tahoe, where the Angora Fire that began June 24 destroyed 254 homes and charred more than 3,000 acres.
