The famous clarity that Lake Tahoe is known for isn't so clear today, as hazardous levels of smoke and ash blanket the area, due to the nearby Caldor Fire.

CAL FIRE says erratic winds in valleys and canyons helped to spark new spot fires, and push the blaze northeast toward Tahoe. The Associated Press is reporting the Caldor Fire is now just 20 miles from Lake Tahoe.

Crews were able to make some progress though. The blaze is 11% contained as of this morning. So far, the blaze has burned more than 197 square miles. That's bigger than the size of Lake Tahoe itself.

Fire officials say the Caldor Fire southwest of Lake Tahoe is now the nation's number one priority for firefighting resources. Efforts are focused on keeping the blaze out of the Tahoe Basin.

Calmer weather helped crews build and strengthen containment lines, but significant embers from the fire are helping to continue the spread.

As of this morning, the Caldor Fire has burned more than 178 square miles, and is 9% contained.

Evacuation warnings and orders are in effect for several areas throughout Amador and El Dorado counties. Highway 50 is closed in both directions between the Sly Park Road exit and Twin Bridges. Local residents can use the highway between Meyers and Twin Bridges.
