Fire burns four acres

Flames from a debris burn escaped Wednesday near Buckeye Road and burned four acres of wildlands.

A landowner with a parcel in the Tahoe National Forest protection area, south of Cascade Shores, started the fire Monday to burn debris. He thought it was extinguished, but noticed Wednesday it had reignited, said Capt. Mike DiMaggio of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Firefighters responded at 4:49 p.m. and left at 8:30 p.m. U.S. Forest Service and CDF firefighters responded with crews from the 49er and Nevada County Consolidated fire districts.
