AlertTahoe camera spots forest fire in Tahoe

Cameras at the University of Nevada Reno’s Seismological Lab have spotted several forest fires burning in the Sierra Front. KOLO-TV reports the AlertTahoe camera found a column of smoke rising between Martis Peak and Incline village Saturday. Fire officials say lightning may have sparked the fire. The camera system was put in place on mountaintops to stream real-time fire information to firefighters.
