going out here at one point gridlock on highway 50 at lake tahoe boulevard with the westbound direction, closed evacuees told to head east toward nevada. this evacuee played his violent past the time all of a sudden, they've got all these people leaving, and there's only one way out of town. it was a tense few moments, i think for our citizens in south lake tahoe today, south lake tahoe is police chief estimates evacuees were stuck on highway 50 for 3.5 hours. i'm so appreciative that our our citizens listen to the warning and the order as you push on up the 50 corridor up in the echo lake into that country. they are currently in a firefight up there. most of the panic. sierra tahoe ski resort was spared the flames moving down into christmas valley and myers close to south lake tahoe for their south. the fire crossed highly 88 toward the kirkwood area. fire officials say the evacuation order is out of an abundance of caution. we're taking that precaution because of the two
11:03 pm
day wind event that we're going through right now. not everyone evacuated, including kevin cooper, who has lived in el dorado county for 30 years. i believe that we have time to wait, watch and see what happens and then react. there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who hold tahoe dear to their heart, having experienced the angora fire in 2000 and seven fire officials say they know what they're up against. this firefight is still far from done. i'm azenith smith ktvu, fox two news. all right. so joining us now is our chief meteorologist. bill martin. bill what are the current conditions look like near the calle door fire. you know they're not favorable. the winds are blowing out of the southwest and they're blowing. they're still blowing in the 15 20 mile an hour range, but they're going to pick up tomorrow and tomorrow is the linchpin day in this fire. um what's the southwest wind look like it comes from this direction. and if you notice that's the direction that that fire is funneling. you see, that's what i'm showing. here all those red areas are the newest burns some of the last
11:04 pm
12 hours. some of those new burns the last couple of hours, you can see the tip of the arrow if you will. that's where the fire is currently, and it's working its way we've got spot fires showing up down in this area. at least i'm getting reports down in the valleys here. we're starting see spot fires, which are obviously run ahead of the fire, and that's the concern. that's the main concern for this fire is the spot fire, so i flipped it around, and you can see now. looking back towards in this case, it might be, uh, sacramento or maybe even for fresno or modesto. but either way, same fire. there's the leading edge here. and this is where the fire is going. it's winding down, and it's happening tonight. it's winding its way down in towards the south lake tahoe area is not far from the city limits and with spot fires. getting out front and with winds coming up again tomorrow, they've got their or cal fire. all those folks up there have their work cut out for him because again, this fire is raging in its its with winds on top of it, it's going to start to blow embers way out in front. and so that's the big concern for tonight.
11:05 pm
the wind forecast for tomorrow morning. um you can see right now. the arrows are kind of going in the different direction. watch what they flip around right here. so somewhere around 11 o'clock tomorrow morning, and then they really pick up so you see 30 miles is an hour 27 miles an hour. that's death on a fire when you get winds blowing that strong so you can see where the fire is now. just up over echo summit working its way down in this wind is going to. it's not that the fire is going to want to drive downhill. it's hard to push a fire downhill, but it's not hard to do is get those embers flying out front of the fire off the hill down towards the airport down towards christmas valley, and that's kind of what's occurring now and will be occurring over the next 24 hours. so i've talked to a few firefighters next 24 hours are crucial on this fire. bill thank you. there is some good news tonight about camp sacramento in the eldorado national forest, the camp manager says the century old camp escaped damage from the cal door fire. the manager says that flames moved into the camp and came within feet of some
