“We are committed to stopping this fire. Every day we plan to turn the corner on this.”
That was Deputy Plumas National Forest Supervisor Laurence Crabtree’s message to the county’s Board of Supervisors.
Crabtree, along with Forest Supervisor Earl Ford and Public Affairs Officer Lee Anne Schramel, briefed the supervisors during the board’s Tuesday, Aug. 7, meeting.
After Crabtree brought the supervisors up to date on the Chips Fire, some of the board members asked Crabtree how long it took the Forest Service to respond to the fire after it was spotted about 2 a.m. July 29.
