RED FLAG WARNING DECLARATION - VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER
The Tahoe Basin is under Red Flag/Critical Fire Weather Warning from 5AM – 8PM tonight. We need to be extremely cautious not to create any type of spark. While wood and charcoal are banned during fire season, under Red Flag Weather conditions no outdoor open flames are permitted in the North Tahoe Fire and Meeks Bay Fire service areas, including gas and propane firepits/grills or pellet grills/smokers. Thank you for helping us to spread the word to our residents and visitors.
We encourage anyone who sees an illegal fire to call it in to 911 with a description of whether it is under control or not so that only the necessary resources are dispatched, and as a reminder outdoor burning of wood and charcoal are never permitted at short-term rentals in eastern Placer County.
