Firefighters from Quincy and the U.S. Forest Service combined to contain a fire in a detached fifth-wheel trailer house Monday afternoon.

The fire happened about 1:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Riverdance Equestrian Center off Bucks Lake Road near Quincy.

Quincy Fire Chief Robbie Cassou said the cause of the fire was still under investigation Monday afternoon.

Three Quincy fire engines and a Forest Service engine responded to the call.

Cassou said a Forest Service firefighter was the first one on the scene. He credited that fireman for saving the trailer.

“He closed the bedroom window and probably saved the structure,” Cassou said.


No one was injured in the fire. But Cassou guessed the trailer would “no longer be habitable” because of all the smoke damage.

In addition to the firefighters, an ambulance from Plumas District Hospital was on the scene.

Editors Note:  After reading our story, Jeff  Dupras  of the Plumas National Forest sent the following response:

To give credit where credit is due, the workers on site secured the trailer by unplugging the electric and the propane, keeping the doors and windows shut, moving vehicles from around the trailer, and directing fire traffic to the scene.  Shutting a vent window on the side was only after these guys had secured the scene.  They were the ones that stopped any potential for the fire to escalate.
