Vegitation Fire Burning in the Tahoe National Forest

A vegetation fire is burning in the Tahoe National Forest.  Public Affairs officer Ann Westling says the fire is in rugged terrain and crews are hiking in.

“The Indian Fire is about a mile south of Indian Valley Campground along the North Yuba River. It’s about 8-120 acres with a moderate rate of spread. Currently there are two air tankers, helicopter 514, seven engines, and six hand crews reroute to the fire. It’s in a fairly remote area and so crews are having to hike in.”

The fire is south of the north Yuba River and south of Indian Valley Campground. Cause of the fire is unknown.
