PILE BURNING BEGINNING DECEMBER 9, 2021

Weather and fuel conditions permitting, the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District anticipates pile burning beginning December 9th in various locations throughout Incline Village, including the Mill Creek drainage near the top of Diamond Peak Ski Resort and in the Lariat Circle areas.

We will not be burning the week of December 20th over the holidays.

Smoke resulting from the pile burns will affect the surrounding areas for approximately 48-72 hours. People that are smoke sensitive are advised to please stay inside and close their windows and doors as much as possible until the smoke dissipates.

We thank the community for your patience and understanding with the short-term smoke impacts, realizing that improving forest health and fire safety are the long-term benefits.

For further information, or to be added to the district’s smoke sensitive notification list, please call the Fire District at 775-831-0351, ext. 0 to speak with someone in person or visit www.nltfpd.net.
