Firefighters with limited resources are battling a new wildfire near South Lake Tahoe, California.

Meanwhile, we are told to stay indoors. We complain about the air quality, which falls between Unhealthy, Very Unhealthy, and Hazardous. Today it’s Hazardous.

The Caldor Fire has burned almost 100,000 acres and remains at 0% containment. It’s impossible to stop the fire’s forward movement. Wind and drought conditions don’t help.
