Our thoughts are with the firefighters and frontline responders as they battle the Caldor Fire and all the affected businesses and residents.
At this time, the North Lake Tahoe region is asking all travelers to postpone immediate travel plans to the area until further notice to keep roads open and lodging space readily available for evacuees and emergency personnel. Access the official statement issued as a joint press release with North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitor Bureau, and the Lake Tahoe Visitor Authority HERE.
Mandatory evacuation orders currently extend through the entire South Lake Tahoe Basin and West Shore communities in El Dorado County up to the Placer County border at Tahoma. There are currently no evacuation orders for Placer County.
