Smoke From Caldor Fire Shrouds Lake Tahoe as Officials Issue Air Quality Warning

Smoke from the 152,000-acre Caldor Fire, which broke out on August 14, has shrouded parts of the Lake Tahoe area, prompting warnings for tourists to avoid the popular destination due to poor air quality.

Drone footage by Louis Brunel on August 27 shows smoke shrouding beaches and trees in Incline Village on the north shore of Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side.

Officials in Washoe County, where Incline Village is located, had issued a warning on Friday ahead of the weekend that air quality was “expected to be unhealthy for sensitive groups.” Credit: Louis Brunel via Storyful
