A  family  of  3  was  able  to  get   out  of  their  Felton  home  safely,   after  a  fire  started  in  their  garage  early  this  morning.    The  2:30 a.m.  blaze,   which  appeared  to  be  accidental  in  nature  (and  was  mostly  contained  to  the  garage),  was  extinguished  in  about 15  minutes.    Due  to  the  smoke  in  the  home,   the  family found  another  place  to  stay  for the  night.   No  pets  were  at  the  home.

In  an  effort  to  make  P.G. & E.  Operate  more  efficiently,  the  company  plans  to  eliminate  approximately  450  “corporate  support  services”  jobs,  and  8  “executive”  positions.      Officials  began  notifying  workers  of  the  cutbacks  today.      Along  with  those  lay-offs,  P.G. & E.  has  also  dismissed  800  contractors.
