STATELINE, Nev. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service says it intends to set small fires to clear out underbrush this week on the west and south shores of Lake Tahoe.

Fuels management crews are scheduled to begin work Tuesday on
the west shore near the Timberland area. The south shore operations
are planned on Kingsbury Grade near Stateline.

Agency officials say residents and visitors can expect to see smoke from the fire project areas. They say smoke-sensitive residents should consider staying indoors and keeping doors, windows and outside vents closed. The work may continue through the end of the week depending on the weather.
