The Quincy Peeps Facebook group believe there is an arsonist at work in the Quincy area due to the number of fires started in the past couple of weeks.
With the permission of Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, Quincy Peeps has started a GoFundMe account and a bank account at Plumas Bank to raise funds for a reward for “information leading to the arrest of an arsonist should an arsonist be sought.”
If the money has not been awarded after two years, or if a person is arrested without the reward being claimed or the Minerva fire is not deemed arson, the money will go to the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department.
Quincy Peeps hope to raise $5,000 within the next few weeks. So far, the group has raised about $1,000 in less than one week. Sometime next week, Quincy Peeps will post a reward with whatever has been raised.
The GoFundMe information is on the Quincy Peeps Facebook page under “The Minerva Fire Reward Fund.”
To donate at Plumas Bank, make checks payable to: Minerva Fire Reward Fund, account 112150379 and mail to Plumas Bank, 336 W. Main St., Quincy CA 95971.
