A fire burning in the Pine Nuts is bringing smoke into the Lake Tahoe Basin.
The Spring Fire started the afternoon of July 22 after lightning struck western Nevada.
More than 1,000 acres have burned as of Sunday night.
“The fire made significant runs through pinon juniper today due to gusty winds near thunderstorms over the area. Access to the fire is difficult due to steep, rocky terrain and limited roads,” according to Sierra Front Interagency Dispatch Center.
