Quick response to burning chip truck

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center received the report of a chip truck on fire this morning, July 13, at approximately 10:50 a.m. as it turned from Quincy Junction Road onto Lee Road. The CHP, Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, Plumas District Hospital, Quincy Volunteer Fire Department and the Forest Service, quickly responded to the scene. The cab was detached while crews worked to put out the fire. Once the fire was doused, the cab was reattached and the truck continued onto SPI to drop off the chips.
