On June 24, 2007 embers from an illegal and abandoned campfire ignited the most destructive fire in Tahoe’s history. Stoked by strong winds and overgrown forests, the Angora Fire destroyed 254 homes and 3,100 acres in the Lake Tahoe watershed within hours. The unique environmental and social impacts, and recovery efforts will be examined in this rolling bus tour of the burn area. Lessons learned from this fire and recovery extend well beyond this incident.
