Portola has been plagued with fires these past two weeks, fires set by humans, whether intentionally or by accident. The old Western Pacific Hospital burned to the ground last Wednesday at 1 a.m. and the following morning, at about the same time, another fire was spotted in a small grove of five or six trees below Feather River Middle School and along the fence at the electrical substation on Gulling Street.
A woman is in custody on charges of arson after three Portola homes were destroyed by fire Thursday afternoon, Sept. 1.
According to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, a 911 call came in at 12:50 p.m. reporting a home at 65 West Magnolia was fully engulfed in fire.
Fair manager John Steffanic told directors Wednesday, Aug. 31, that the 2011 Plumas-Sierra County Fair generated $113,849 — about one-third of the year’s total revenue.
Steffanic reported an increase of 1,225 in paid attendance over 2010. The system also reflected a huge decrease in unpaid attendance.
The Portola City Council and city staff responded to questions from citizens B.J. Pearson and Earl Morrison at their last meeting in an ongoing attempt to address “affordability” issues regarding recent water and sewer rate hikes.
City Manager Leslie Tigan reported to Earl Morrison, who was in attendance, that although the city’s attention had been diverted by its involvement in Railroad Days, Todd Roberts of Public Works had almost completed gathering data from the past 10 years regarding water flows from Willow Springs.
