Plumb Street Fire Does ‘Heavy Damage’ to Vehicle, Garage and Residences

The Susanville Fire Department was dispatched to a residential garage fire on Plum Street in Susanville shortly after 4:00 Saturday afternoon and arrived on-scene to find the garage, and a vehicle, fully involved with vehicles and residential exposures threatened.

“Initial firefighting efforts were hampered by downed power lines in the alley behind the involved buildings,” said Fire Chief James Moore in details released Monday. “Aggressive firefighting efforts extinguished the fire in the garage and limited the damage to nearby exposures.”

According to the report damage to the structure consisted of heavy fire damage to the garage and vehicles and heat damage to the residence near the garages.

The fire extended into neighboring yards and an adjacent vacant house which was heavily damaged.

LMUD disconnected the power in a two-block radius around the fire to provide for firefighter safety. Power was restored at approximately 10:30 that evening.

There were 7 fire apparatus and 26 firefighters on scene to battle the incident and no fire fighter injuries were reported. The residents of the house were not displaced.

Susanville Fire Department was assisted by the following agencies: Susanville Police Department, Cal-Fire, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Janesville Fire Protection District, Susan River Fire District, Lake Forest Fire Protection District, U.S. Forest Service, Susanville City Public Works and LMUD.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

September 18, 1942

Arrangements are being completed this week by Helen S. Hallowell county superintendent of schools for the opening September 14 of an emergency school at Hackstaff in Honey Lake Valley to serve an estimated seventy-five grammar school students.

A building is to be furnished by the federal government while the responsibility of furnishing teachers rests with Lassen County.

The new Hackstaff school will consist of grades 1 to 8 inclusive Miss Hallowell revealed and two teachers will be required.

To date only one instructor, Mrs. Francis Keys has been secured for the emergency school and some difficulty is being experienced in making arrangements for the second teacher.

Students of high school age will attend classes in Susanville with bus transportation to be provided for them from homes to school.
