Virus Fears Close Some Courts, Nix July 4 Fireworks Show

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The biggest Fourth of July celebration on the north shore of Lake Tahoe has been canceled.

Fireworks are still planned at South Lake Tahoe in California, where Tahoe's biggest gathering typically attracts tens of thousands.
