  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

Plumas County’s first two wildfires of the season were reported Sunday afternoon, May 6.

According the U.S. Forest Service, both fires were quickly contained and extinguished. No structures were threatened.

The first fire burned about one-half acre above the Crescent Grade near Greenville. A second fire charred about two acres above Chandler Road near Quincy.

Both fires were “person-caused,” according to Forest Service Information Officer Lee Anne Schramel-Taylor. She added that although both fires are under investigation, neither appeared to be suspicious.

Schramel-Taylor said wind was a primary factor.

“Fire season has started,” Schramel-Taylor said. “It’s dry out there, and people need to be careful.”

The forest service recommended that residents take the time to clean up pine needles and other potential fire fuels.
