|These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:|
Portola has been plagued with fires these past two weeks, fires set by humans, whether intentionally or by accident. The old Western Pacific Hospital burned to the ground last Wednesday at 1 a.m. and the following morning, at about the same time, another fire was spotted in a small grove of five or six trees below Feather River Middle School and along the fence at the electrical substation on Gulling Street.
The patrolling Plumas County deputy spotted the fire, and the Portola Fire Department put it out before it could get out of hand and spread to the vacated school building or the electrical station.
The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office has advised residents to keep an eye out for suspicious people or circumstances. If needed, call 283-6363, a hotline for anonymous tips.Anyone with information regarding the two fires already under investigation is also asked to call.
