ANGORA FIRE BURN AREA TO REOPENS
South Lake Tahoe Calif. Forest Supervisor Terri Marceron of the USDA
Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, has signed a forest
that will reopens the Angora Fire burn area to public access effective
After midnight, Thursday, January 17, 2008.
The burn area was closed to the public through a Forest Order last
to reduce resource damage and erosion potential following the June 2007
Angora Wildfire. The closure also reduced public safety risks from
trees, and protected erosion control treatments until a significant
pack arrived. Recent snows are sufficient enough to protect the area
spring. When spring arrives, the burn area will be reassessed for
actions, which might require localized closures depending on the
Individuals entering the burn area or other steep sloped backcoutry
are advised to check on local avalanche conditions by visiting
http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/ltbmu where a link to the Sierra Avalanche
can be found on the front page. While in the burn area, try to avoid
areas with exposed soils to minimize your impact.
