Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018 13A Residents escape ly Debra Moore Managing Editor dmoore@plumasnews.com A fire broke out just after 12 a.m Tuesday morning, Sept. 4, ultimately destroying three homes -- a two-story structure and two mobile homes -- as well as several outbuildings and vehicles on First Street in East Quincy. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said that all residents and their pets were safely evacuated with the assistance of sheriff's personnel who happened to be patrolling nearby. "The deputies (a field training officer and trainee) were on the scene in 20 to 30 seconds," Hagwood said. "Thankfully there were two of them and they were able to alert the occupants." Hagwood said that one home's occupants included four children. Quincy Fire responded along with departments from Meadow Valley, Greenhorn, Long Valley, Graeagle and Plumas Eureka. The cause of the fire is under investigation. It is believed that the fire began in the two-story home and then spread to mobile homes behind and adjacent to it. "Thanks to the great work of the responding fire departments, we were prevented from having a bigger disaster," Hagwood said. More information was unavailable as this newspaper went to press.
