RENO, Nev. (AP) -- U.S. Forest Service crews intend to resume prescribed fire operations on Monday at a number of places throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin.

Officials say the activity may continue through the week and possibly the weekend if weather, staffing and conditions allow.

The burns are tentatively scheduled on Spooner Summit on the east shore and in the Luther Pass Campground off Highway 89 near South Lake Tahoe, Calif.

On the west shore, operations will take place off Tahoe Park Heights Drive in Ward Canyon, the west side of Highway 89 near Tahoma, and near D. L. Bliss State Park.
