An early morning blaze just days before Christmas has left a Portola family of eight with one dead, six injured and their home destroyed.
Fire broke out in the mobile home at 417 W. Plumas Ave. Wednesday, Dec. 21, around 12:15 a.m., quickly engulfing the home and spreading to mobile homes on either side.
Plumas County sheriff’s deputies pulled Greenville Elementary student Kyle Hitson out of a lineup of his classmates last week.
Deputy Phil Shannon and his wife, Che Shannon, also a sheriff’s office employee, stood on either side of Hitson and turned him to face the assembled students.
The county has decided to scrap a mandatory curbside recycling and waste removal program … at least for now.
Instead, the Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday, Dec. 13, to apply excess profit from Feather River Disposal toward improving FRD’s transfer stations.
A single December meeting, a long agenda and a recall item of community interest combined to fill council chambers to capacity at the Dec. 14 meeting of Portola’s City Council.

The fire that injured seven people and killed another in Portola yesterday reignited today around noon. The Portola Fire Department and one Delleker tanker were on the scene, along with the Plumas County Sheriff's Office.
In other developments, officials say they have recovered remains they
believe to be 73-year-old Donna Richardson. Her identity will have to
be confirmed by dental records or DNA analysis.
A CalFire investigator said today that the cause of the blaze is
still under investigation. He said he could not even confirm that the
fire started in the laundry room, as earlier reported.
One Portola resident is missing and seven are injured following a house fire this morning.
According to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, the blaze began in the laundry room of a doublewide mobile home at 417 West Plumas Ave. It quickly engulfed the entire structure.
Seven occupants — Todd Barclay, 41, and Carla Barclay, 42, and their five children, ranging in age from 7 to 17 —escaped the fire.
An eighth resident, Donna Richardson, 73, has not been accounted for.
