June marks the 10th anniversary of the Angora Fire
On June 24, 2007, embers from an illegal and abandoned campfire ignited the most destructive fire in the history of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Years of fire suppression, hazardous fuels accumulation, and drought impacted basin forests, leaving them vulnerable to severe wildfire. Fire managers and regulatory agencies across the basin learned valuable lessons from this devastating fire. It raised critical awareness about the need to increase the pace and scale of thinning and treating forested areas in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) and to educate the public about building Fire Adapted Communities.
