Stateline, Nevada – The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) has published the summer 2017 edition of Tahoe In Depth, a special issue on “Remembering Angora” to mark the 10-year anniversary of the wildfire this June.
The Angora Fire is the most destructive wildfire in memory at Lake Tahoe. Sparked on June 24, 2007 by an illegal and abandoned campfire, the fire quickly burned 3,100 acres and destroyed 254 homes and structures.
Stories in the summer 2017 edition focus on the fire and the impact it had on Lake Tahoe’s landscape and communities, rebuilding after the fire, and how agencies and residents are working to prevent wildfires, improve wildfire preparedness, reduce hazardous fuels in the region’s forests, and create fire adapted communities.
TRPA published the summer 2017 edition of Tahoe In Depth with significant contributions from local, state, federal, nonprofit, and community partners, including other members of the Tahoe Fire and Fuels Team.
The award-winning newspaper is mailed to every homeowner in the Tahoe Basin. It is also available at distribution points around Lake Tahoe and online at https://www.trpa.gov/press-room/tahoe-in-depth/.
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency leads the cooperative effort to preserve, restore, and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region, while improving local communities, and people’s interactions with our irreplaceable environment.
