A structure fire at 3311 Fawn Lane, off Grizzly Road outside of Portola, destroyed the garage and workshop of Bill and Virginia Muckle, 23-year residents.
Incident commander, Fire Chief Greg McCaffrey of Beckwourth Volunteer Fire Department, said the cause of the fire was still under investigation.
Plumas County Community Development Commission Executive Director David Keller recently told his board of commissioners, mostly made up of county supervisors, that Plumas County could be eligible for disaster recovery funds because of the local impacts of the 2008 fire season.
County Clerk Kathy Williams brought the Plumas District Hospital tax cap issue before the Board of Supervisors March 16 as an "urgency item."

The regular meeting of the Plumas County Office of Education is usually pro forma - over and done in 15 minutes. Not so March 9, when Superintendent Glenn Harris and Assistant Superintendent Bruce Williams, who is responsible for personnel matters, presented a resolution of intent to dismiss 5.83 full-time equivalent faculty positions.
Plumas County Community Development Commission Executive Director David Keller told his board at a Tuesday, March 17, meeting that he recently received a pleasant surprise in the form of a U.S. Department of Agriculture memo, which he took as a sign the Wildwood Village project would move forward.
