It is important that everyone remain vigilant and use extreme caution to avoid igniting a wildfire. Years of dry conditions have made all small-diameter fuels, such as needles, grasseS, small twigs and bushes (also known as "fine fuels"), extremely flammable. These fuels are the primary driver of fire intensity and largely determine how fast a fire spreads. Fine fuels are less than one-quarter inch in diameter and are the fastest-drying fuels in the forest. During the next two months, the fall winds will intensify and they will further dry these fuels. To learn more about fire safety and ongoing efforts that are taking place throughout the county to increase the fire resilience.of local communities, interested folks are welcome to attend the monthly meeting of the Plumas County Fire Safe Council. The next meeting will be held Thursday,' Sept. 11, at the Plumas County Planning & Building Services office, located at 555 Main St. in Quincy, from 9 to 11 a.m. The Plumas County Fire Safe Council invites all residents that are interested (= in preventing and mitigating impacts from wildland fires to their homes, their neighbors and their communities to become members.
