Angora fire 40% contained

Cal Fire’s incident page on the Angora Fire reports that the fire is 40% contained as of 6:30 this morning with full containment expected by the end of the weekend. Here’s hoping that most of the damage to populated areas is over. The extended CoolDMZ family has a summer cabin at Echo Summit, so the Angora and Seneca Pond (where apparently the fire originated) is a familiar area to me. The Sac Rag extends our best wishes to the people of South Lake Tahoe and our hopes that no more damage will come to the area.

  1. You may have seen the full-page color ad in today’s A section of the Bee that the Raley’s and Bel Air family of stores are collecting cash donations to assist victims of the fires. They are matching 100% of the donations up to $100,000, and all donations go directly to aid.

  2. You can donate at any Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods, or Food Source. I am checking with my company to see if they will match any employee donations too.

  3. **Snark Warning***
    So here is my beef. How do we know that the donations will go to someone who has a primary residence up there and not just someone who has a summer fun house up there. (Sorry I am just in a snarky mood)

  4. Many of the houses in that part of SLT are at least lived in (if not owned) by locals. There are a lot of vacation homes as well, but some are full time rentals occupied by the people who work in the area year around. So even if the donations help someone that was displaced by the fire because the vacation home they rented year-around burned down, then that’s not a bad thing. As far as Lake Tahoe goes, that’s a pretty blue-collar area.

  5. Don’t forget about the reported 1900 firefighters who need to be fed and need somewhere to rest — I assume that some relief funds go to the firefighting effort.

  8. TP: i actually got that web link from visiting their website, not by watching… although now i’m imagining Chris Burrous reading out the entire link on the air. “triple w dot cbs13 dot com slash topstories slash local underscore story underscore……”

    and i think what i need to do is watch more CBS13, because it is too hilarious to be ignored.

    This morning, reporting from Lake Tahoe, Lisa Gonzales had too much blush on her face. She must have put her make-up on with a light from a flashlight…

    Tony Lopez ran after a sheriff who was trying to tell people to evacuate. The sheriff ignored Tony Lopez.

    Lisa Gonzales and a cameraperson were following a lady around inside the lady’s house. The lady was trying to figure out which of her belongings to put in her car.

  10. that scene of tony running after the sheriff..”hey guys got a minute?” hilarious. there was another shot of a chp officer yelling at them to get out while they are talking to people rushing to save what they can from thier house. DMZ you are right..for the comedy relief 13 is soooo worth it. i wonder what people really think of 13. what about a boxing match between walt and diedre vs brandi and sam shane. walt’s scrapper, you can tell.
