RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Summer is nearing and that means preparation for peak fire season is a necessity.

The smoke from a controlled burn in the South Reno area was part of that preparation. The burn was being done by the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District and was near Mount Rose Highway and the I-580 southbound off-ramp.

The burn was specifically in the steamboat agriculture ditch to remove the accumulation of tumbleweeds, reduce hazardous fuels and prevent water flow back up.

It's amazing how these controlled burns that destroy our air quality are OK with anti-smokers, but fire up just one tiny cigarette and watch them scream bloody murder.
