Located near the mouth of the Feather River Canyon, the fire started Thursday, Sept. 6, when a limb came down across a power line, starting several small ffn'es. As the fire that eventually covered 8,333 acres was con- trolled, 47 homes including mobile homes and trailers, three commercial structures, 120 outbuildings, and 155 ve- hicles were destroyed. That destruction alone to- taled $6 million. Firefighters, however, were able to save 114 homes with an estimated value of more than $24 million. In fighting the fire, 2,183 personnel from throughout the state, including some sup- port from Plumas County and the Plumas National Forest, was required. Six air tankers, 160 fire en- gines, 11 helicopters, two air tactical planes, one lead plane, 66 fire crews, 18 water tenders and 33 bulldozers were called in to put out the blaze. "This was not so much a fire as it was a firestorm," said Incident Commander Loyde Johnson. "We feel that by residents complying with evacuation orders, lives were saved."
