Press Releases

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the Caldor Fire:

“The Caldor Fire crossed containment lines over the weekend, putting the Lake Tahoe Basin, particularly South Lake Tahoe, at risk. I encourage everyone to stay safe by following all evacuation orders.

“The Caldor Fire has already devastated communities in the foothills near Tahoe. It has burned nearly 180,000 acres and 472 homes. In El Dorado and Alpine Counties, the fire now threatens more than 20,000 buildings and homes and at least 40,000 people have been displaced.

“I’ve been in contact with federal and state emergency officials to ensure they have every available resource. I’m grateful to crews that have traveled across the state and country to fight this fire and urge the National Multi-Agency Coordinating Group to continue prioritizing this fire for additional resources.

“I will continue to monitor the situation and encourage anyone who can’t find a shelter location or needs additional assistance to contact my office and we’ll do all we can to help.

“It’s incumbent on all of us to do our part and follow evacuation orders. Failure to do so puts yourself and the firefighters at risk.”

Following is the list of evacuation shelter sites currently open. Updated shelter information from the California Office of Emergency Services can be found here.
