Chester skies were ablaze in the dark hours of Saturday, Dec. 3, after a garage fire at 259 First Ave. quickly spread next door to the residence at 265 First Ave. By the time it was over, the fire had left two families homeless.
“Chester Fire Rescue received the call at 1:28 a.m. and when I arrived on scene at 1:35 a.m. the two structures were pretty well involved. The winds were also whipping the fire toward a third residence at 271 First Ave.,” Assistant Fire Chief Nick Dawson said.

For more information, to donate or purchase a drawing ticket, contact Kay Cullis at 221-9524 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents in Feather River Disposal’s service area, not including Quincy, Chester and La Porte, could soon have curbside recycling service.
But that service would come with two conditions: It would be mandatory. And it wouldn’t be free.
The Greenville clinic is one bright spot in an otherwise dim financial picture at Eastern Plumas Health Care according to a report to board directors when they met in Indian Valley earlier this month.
By itself, the clinic is breaking even, Chief Financial Officer Jeri Nelson said. “It’s holding its own.”
