I want to extend a very heartfelt "Thank you" to all the women and men of our local volunteer fire department, also to the police department and everyone else involved for the excellent job they did of putting out the house fire at S. Eighth St. and Second Ave. S.
I live in the house just north of this house and I was so afraid of my home catching on fire also as the houses are very close together.
It was only through the efforts of our wonderful fire department that this did not happen.
To watch them take off the roof of this house and not have any debris fall onto or into my house was amazing.
So the next time the fire department, police department and emergency personnel asks for a donation-give- all of us can give something.
They need equipment, training and whatever else goes into saving lives and property.
Haley, Ashley and their children need our help also to rebuild their lives. So 'give' because the next time a home, possessions, even a life needs to be saved, it just may be yours.
