While long overdue, but genuinely welcomed by snowmobile and skiing enthusiasts, last week’s heavy Sierra snowfall crippled volunteer firefighters’ efforts to respond to an early morning fire Wednesday, Jan. 20, that completely destroyed historical Bucks Lake Lodge, two outbuildings and the owner’s adjacent cabin residence. No injuries were reported.
The Building Department performed roof snow load sampling today in the Almanor Basin. This was done to determine the weight of snow on roofs in the area.
County supervisors took a series of steps Tuesday, Jan. 19, in preparation of roadwork on the Oroville-Quincy Highway that will leave a portion of the byway closed for as long as eight weeks.
The highway, also known as Bucks Lake Road/Big Creek Road or Forest Highway 119, runs from Quincy past Bucks Lake and down to Oroville. The work will take place on Big Creek Road.
The Plumas County Sheriff's Office has issued the following Training Bulletin:
