CalFire Humboldt-Del Norte Unit HQ - Fortuna CA
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built an administration and residence building for the fire-fighting arm of the California Division of Forestry in Humboldt County in 1941. This is now a unit of Cal-Fire, the statewide forest and wildfire agency.
The four or five building complex appears to have been constructed all at the same time and in the same style. It is not clear if the WPA work went beyond a single building or the Division of Forestry added the rest of the structures.
