South Lake Tahoe – In an unforeseen incident on Monday, a semi-truck fire prompted the temporary closure of a segment of Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe. Authorities have confirmed that the fire has been extinguished, but the aftermath cleanup is expected to prolong the closure.

As of now, U.S. 50 is inaccessible in both directions near the airport, leading to disruptions in the regular flow of traffic. The only access point to the airport is through Meyers.

City officials are actively engaged in managing the situation, and updates regarding the full reopening of the affected roadway remain pending. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, leaving commuters and residents awaiting further details on the incident.

The community is advised to stay informed through official channels for the latest updates on road conditions and reopening schedules. The impact on local traffic and the broader implications of the incident are yet to be fully assessed.
