(SF Gate) The Caldor Fire raced down highways 50 and 89 — main arteries for travel to and from the Tahoe Basin — as the wildfire continued to burn out-of-control Monday night. The flames burned cabins along the highways as residents of nearby Douglas County, Nevada were warned to evacuate.
“There is fire activity happening in California that we have never seen before. The critical thing for the public to know is evacuate early,” said Chief Thom Porter, director of Cal Fire. “For the rest of you in California: Every acre can and will burn someday in this state.”
Firefighters are in a battle to save homes and businesses as high winds push the Caldor Fire into the Tahoe Basin, creating a worst-case scenario for one of California’s most beloved natural treasures.
