Viewers from throughout the Truckee Meadows are reporting smokey conditions. The National Weather Service says the smoke is likely coming from one of the wildfires in California. A NWS meteorologist says the smoke is probably originating from the "Zaca Fire" in Santa Barbara County, CA. He says the fire has been producing periodic smoke in the Reno-area for the last month. The smoke is expected to begin to clear Saturday afternoon into Sunday. The Zaca Fire is burning in the Los Padres National Forest, has burned nearly 239,000 acres and is 83 percent contained. It began July 4th and full containment is predicted on September 7th. There have been 40 injuries associated with the blaze and 66 structures were threatened at last check. The fire is believed to be human-caused.
