Genoa, Nev. — Engines from around the region responded to a Sherwood Court house fire in Lower Kingsbury around 5:40 p.m. on the Fourth. When they arrived, firefighters found the garage engulfed in flame and the occupant outside. In addition to Tahoe Douglas, East Fork, South Lake Tahoe and Incline Village units responded.
That happened in the middle of a recurring fight in front of the Tahoe Douglas district’s fire Station 24 at Zephyr Cove. For a while there, Douglas Sheriff’s units were transporting a couple detainees after every call. I’ll do a wrap-up of all that later this morning.
A request by Douglas High School Leadership to conduct their Homecoming event in Minden Park on Oct. 11 goes before the Minden Town Board 5:30 p.m. today. It involves the usual closures around the park. The Town Board meets in the CVIC Hall.
The fence behind the Genoa Town Park has seen better days and will cost at least $11,000 to fix. Genoa Town Board members will discuss that and asking NV Energy to bring power down on Nixon Street to vendors. That would eliminate the generator that usually serves those booths during Candy Dance and other events.
Work on the Genoa Town Church has begun. Town Board Chairman Gordon Pasley said donations are rolling in to complete the work. The church was built after the 1910 fire claimed the one on Main Street.
Expect sunny skies today with a high temperature of 93 degrees and the wind out of the west at 5 mph, picking up after midnight to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
