NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District’s fuels crew will start burning piles of tree limbs and brush in Sun Valley Regional Park, adjacent to Ester Bennett Elementary School, as part of a 30 acre hazardous fuels reduction project.

To help with the smoke conditions, some night time pile burning may be done on Friday night.

NLTFPD says the debris or “slash” piles were created as a result of a hazardous fuels reduction and defensible space project earlier this year, to help minimize the risk of wildland fires in the area.

The burning piles are expected to produce smoke that may be visible throughout the area. Smoke resulting from the pile burns will affect the surrounding areas for approximately 24-36 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.
