The Caldor fire is moving away from Lake Tahoe after damaging the outskirts of the Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort. Now it’s heading for the Nevada state line.
As of 7 AM the Caldor Fire was 25% contained and 210,259 acres. Mandatory evacuation orders hopped the state line into Nevada on Tuesday, with residents in Douglas County, including Upper Kingsbury and Lower Kingsbury, told to leave. “The fire remained very active overnight due to the extremely poor humidity recovery and warm temperatures,” Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service wrote in a Wednesday morning incident report.
The Caldor Fire has destroyed close to 550 homes, many of them during the incident’s early, intense run through Grizzly Flats south of Pollock Pines in mid-August, according to The Sacramento Bee.
