A fire gutted an apartment at a 25-unit complex in Strawberry on Aug. 8, forcing 10 families out of their homes. While no official cause has been determined, the resident said he heard a pop from the bathroom after plugging in a cellphone to charge but didn't investigate the noise.

Fire guts apartment in Strawberry complex, displacing 10 families

Ten families were displaced last week after a fire ripped through an apartment at a 25-unit complex in Strawberry.

Firefighters from three agencies were able to contain the flames to just one upstairs studio, though other units had water and smoke damage following the Aug. 8 incident.

No one was injured in the fire, but one woman was hurt by falling sheetrock the next day.

Marin County sheriff's deputies were first to arrive at the scene about 9 p.m. last Tuesday after receiving reports of flames bursting from the front door of a unit at 1052 Redwood Highway frontage road, just north of Tiburon Boulevard near the Ethan Allen showroom.

Former Tiburon mayor and one-time congressional candidate Branwell "Bran" David Fanning, who served on the second Tiburon City Council, died Aug. 8 after a short illness. He was 91.

Mr. Fanning moved with his wife, Carolyn, and daughters to the Reedlands neighborhood of Tiburon in 1960. Almost immediately, he dived into local politics by reorganizing his neighborhood homeowner association, which he headed from 1961 to 1963.

Then he joined the Tiburon Peninsula Coordinating Council, a coalition of homeowners associations working toward incorporation — which would give Tiburon more control over development — while also lobbying the Marin Board of Supervisors in defense of Tiburon's interests.

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

Tiburon will have a council race come November.

Three candidates have filed for the two seats up for grabs in a Nov. 7 special election: recently appointed incumbents Holli Thier and David Kulik and challenger Jack Ryan, a Hawthorne Terrace resident and coordinator for the Yellow Bus Challenge program.
The deadline for declaring candidacy was Aug. 11.

Tiburon was forced to schedule the special election because two sitting councilmembers, Erin Tollini and Frank Doyle, resigned during the spring and moved out of state with their families.
