Fire burns Down Dr. Courtney's Office Next to Garberville Hospital
Around 2 am last night, a fire destroyed the medical office complex next to the Garberville Hospital. Up in flames went the building owned by local dentist, Steve Wilson. The structure was also used by well known local physician and authority on juicing cannabis, Dr. Courtney. The suspected cause is electrical. An old Redwood shake roof is posited as being a factor in the speed at which the fire destroyed the place. Dr. Wilson is out of town but Dr. Courtney has quickly relocated and is seeing patients at the American Civil Liberties Hall, next to Cecil’s in Garberville at 773 Redwood Dr.
UPDATE: Donna Tam has a nice piece in the Times Standard that fills out the details.
