    Just a clarification. There was no CalFire response to this fire. The closest CalFire Fire Station is at Garbo Gap in Butte County. Off-duty Fire Captain Brian Woods from Meadow Valley Fire was a block away when the alarm went out and he attempted to slow the fires progress with a garden hose. Quincy Fire arrived shortly after and knocked down the fire which had by then run the length of the attic. Meadow Valley and Greenhorn Fire responded on “Mutual Aid” to assist in the firefighting operation and were instrumental in providing support for initial attack and overhaul operations.

    Quincy Fire would like to give thanks to Greenhorn and Meadow Valley Fire, the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office and CHP, the Quincy Fire Support Team and the PDH/Careflight Ambulance personnel for their assistance with this incident.

    Great job everyone!

    Thank you God, all firemen, and police involved in putting out the fire in my apartment complex! The fire came extremely close to one of the apartments and I heard that a gust of wind came and moved the fire away from the apartment building from a large tree it was burning up. Only an act of God could have done that. It is tragic that we lost the building but things could have been extremely worse.
