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.

That just goes to show how on it our paper is... all the engines could have been on prescribed fires andI bet they dont do curvy roads very well at high speeds.

Gee does that mean the wildfire in the canyon on April 23rd didn't happen??!! Look between Indian Jim school & Tobin & you can see where it was. Four good samaratins stopped it's advance & waited an hour for the forest service to show up!!!

Ahh, 'Person-caused.' The new PC term from the Forest Circus to describe a man-caused fire. The word 'man' being taken from the work 'human,' which describes mankind.
