Tahoe Fire Expected to Get Strong Wind

Sponsored by:

Fire crews have completed a line around 50 percent of the 14,500-acre Martis forest fire west of Reno
with the most inaccessible half to go — and the threat of gusty winds by this afternoon.

Forecasters are calling for winds from the southwest and cooler
weather late today and into the weekend as a system moves in. The fire already has begun moving in a northeasterly direction, to the relief of people in the Lake
Tahoe Basin.
