Authorities say a fire broke out Monday afternoon near Tahoe's South shore.
The fire department says the flames burned in vegetation behind the Colony Inn and South of Montreal Road.
Fortunately crews knocked it down quickly, before it could spread, containing the fire to just a half-acre.
Officials still aren't sure what caused it, but say they found an encampment nearby.
