‘Looking Down a Gun Barrel.’ South Lake Tahoe Residents Should Evacuate Sooner Rather Than Later
Active NorCal August 30, 20210
The next two days will provide crucial for fire officials to save lives and structures in the Tahoe Basin threatened by the Caldor Fire. A Red Flag Warning has been issued in the area with winds up to 35 mph, the precise worst time to see this kind of weather. With the fire currently moving down Echo Summit, South Lake Tahoe residents should evacuate sooner rather than later.
The fire showed its strength on Sunday night, moving through Twin Bridges with a destructive fervor and destroying much in its path. High elevation cabins were burned to the ground and Sierra-at-Tahoe resort lost at least one building. Now, the fire continues to move down Echo Summit, with a clear path towards South Lake Tahoe.
