Angora Fire - South Lake Tahoe - Radio Frequencies

Due to over-vegetation, only 29% of our usual snow pack, over-crowding, and many other factors...the dreaded time bomb we've all been warned about has been ignited.

OH...OHHH! My thoughts and prayers remain with the community of South Lake Tahoe. The Angora fire that started approximately 1:30 pm yesterday has since consumed 2500 acres, destroyed 220 homes and two fire trucks. Another 500 residents are in danger of complete devastation, and the fire is only 5% contained.

Over 1000 people have been evacuated to the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center at 1180 Rufus Allen Blvd. If you need information on relatives, you may call this center at (530)-542-6056.

Bio Green is holding a blanket and food drive for the fire victims today at 3785 Baker Lane, Suite 202 in Reno, NV. You may reach them at (775)-329-7272.

For persons needing to evacuate pets, the Pet Network Animal Friends is taking dogs, cats, and small animals. They may be reached at (775)-720-3773.

The Inn at Heavenly Ski Resort, Value Inn, Montgomery Inn, Super 8 Motels and some others are taking in residents at no charge in the Tahoe area. Horizon Inn & Casino is taking in residents, but no pets can be accommodated there.

Hwy. 50 is closed at State Line to Pollock Pines. St. Route 89 is closed just north of Emerald Bay, and also at Hwy. 88 where it intersects at Luther Pass.

For those with scanners...keep up with the local coverage on the following frequencies:

172.3750 TMU Basin Net
154.2650 White Fire-2
154.2950 White Fire-3
Local Fire Departments:
153.9500 South Lake Fire Dept.
154.3400 Lake Valley FPD

This fire will take out many more structures today, keep these people in your prayers as the authorities try to get a handle on the worst fire in Tahoe history.
