The voracious Caldor Fire continued its advance toward Lake Tahoe on Friday, while also threatening hundreds of houses in Pollock Pines off Highway 50.
Fire crews have been readying for the approaching flames in Pollock Pines on the west edge of the 144,000-acre blaze for days, said Cal Fire spokesman Capt. Stephen Horner, plowing fire lines with bulldozers, making water and retardant drops and setting small controlled fires to deprive the area of fuels. Dozens of firefighters are stationed in the area “in preparation for the fire to burn up to their containment line,” Horner said Friday.
