Nev., Calif. Governors to Receive Tahoe Fire Report

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Recommendations from a blue ribbon panel on how to ease the threat of another catastrophic wildfire at Lake Tahoe will be presented Tuesday to the governor's of California and Nevada and a U.S. senator.

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be joined by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to receive the final report from the California-Nevada Tahoe Basin Fire Commission and to thank panel members for their efforts.

The commission was created last summer after the Angora fire in June burned more than 3,000 acres and destroyed 254 homes near Tahoe's west shore.

In March, the commission unanimously agreed on at least 70 recommendations, including asking the Bush administration to
declare a state of emergency for the Lake Tahoe Basin.
