At 10:54 a.m., the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched with its ladder truck to join the battle above the two-story building. Once on scene, and joining forces with the other agencies, the attack from all sides allowed the fire fighters to begin to get the upper hand on the blaze.

Sept. 9 Saying that his request might be "distasteful," Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood asked the supervisors, Sept. 1, for authorization to spend $4,999 for satellite television for the jail.
