Caldor Fire Update and Resources


The health and safety of our local residents and communities is our highest priority.
At this time, we are asking all travelers to postpone immediate travel plans to the North Lake Tahoe region until further notice to keep roads open and lodging space readily available for evacuees and emergency personnel. Access the official statement issued as a joint press release with North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitor Bureau, and the Lake Tahoe Visitor Authority HERE.
While there are currently no evacuation orders in place for Placer County, an evacuation order issued for all of nearby South Lake Tahoe and West Shore communities in El Dorado County up to the Placer County border due to the Caldor Fire is in place, as are evacuation orders for parts of Douglas County. Stay informed HERE.
We are incredibly grateful for the firefighters and first responders working to keep the region safe, and our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone affected by the losses around the Tahoe region.
