Tahoe Angora Fire Fully Contained

Firefighters have fully contained the Angora fire, which burned for more than a week, devastating 3,100 acres and 254 homes in the South Lake Tahoe area. The fire was believed to be accidentally started from an illegal campfire near Seneca Pond that got out of control. Residents evacuated from the area have been able to return home, but a large area of forest that burned is off-limits to the public for the time being. Cleanup and recovery now begins for the hundreds of residents who lost their homes to this early season fire.
