There are 90 Firewise Communities in California, and now Greenhorn, near Quincy, is one of them.

The designation means the community, which includes 143 homes, 238 residential lots and 236 people, has come together to make the area more resilient to the threat of fire.

That’s important because records show that between 1985 and 2010, 30 wildfires were reported within 2 miles of Greenhorn. Add a comment
