A busy first day on the job for Ukiah Valley Fire Authority’s New Chief. Jeff Adair and his crew were called to a fire at a house on North State Street around 10pm Monday night. Adair says the building was fully involved and spreading when they arrived. The fire was contained with help from Redwood Valley Fire and CalFire but not before damaging a nearby barn and a neighboring house. Chief Adair tells the Daily Journal they determined it was an accidental electrical fire but they are continuing to investigate. The house was used to grow marijuana. It’s not yet clear whether anyone lives on the property but no one was there when the fire started.

The clock is ticking on the California DMV’s traffic ticket amnesty program. Signed into law in 2015 by Governor Jerry Brown, the program allows those with unpaid traffic or non-traffic infractions, to have fines potentially reduced by up to 80 percent. Legislators came up with the amnesty plan to try to recoup as must past debt as possible. It does not cover parking tickets, reckless driving, or DUI. And some courts will actually collect an amnesty program fee. To see if you are eligible check the state DMV Website. The amnesty program expires Monday April 3.
