MARKLEEVILLE -- Fueled by wind and dry vegetation, flames are quickly spreading in in the Sierra. In three days, the Washington Fire has charred over 14,942 acres of forest land south of South Lake Tahoe. "It's sad because you see the glow of the fire through the cloud, the smoke cloud," said tourist Debbie Bergantz.
