A fire that started Friday on a 500-block Lakeshore Boulevard home was contained quickly by an in-home sprinkler system that North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District officials say saved the home.
The fire started in a walk-in closet in the master bedroom of the home a little before 12:30 p.m. Friday, said NLTFPD Asst. Fire Marshal Pete Mulvihill.
