NEVADA CITY, Calif. – Fire restrictions go into effect July 25 within the Tahoe National Forest. According to Forest Supervisor Eli Ilano, “After record precipitation this past winter, hot and dry summer weather has created conditions on the Forest that could support large fire growth. We want to ensure a fun and safe summer for everyone.”
Complete details regarding 2017 fire restrictions, including the list of designated recreation sites, are available on the Tahoe National Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/tahoe.
