July 1, 2021, Truckee Meadows Fire and Carson City Fire Department were called late Thursday morning to a brush fire that started from an RV fire at Washoe Lake State Park. It is estimated to have burned around 2 acres at the park entrance on East Lake Blvd., according to Sierra Front Interagency Dispatch Center.
UPDATE: The RV owner has disappeared and the red tape with various agencies like the DMV has drawn out the removal and disposal of the burnt hazardous leftovers. However, there is a plan in place to get it removed and disposed of properly.
treesRus will remove and dispose of the burnt vegetation, plant new trees and bushes as well as irrigate them. Although most of the work is done by volunteers, some dollars are needed to buy supplies and pay for disposal expenses. Donate, volunteer, sponsor a tree or three.
