Letter to Editor – Thanks to Fire Companies That Responded to Grass Fire

On August 12th while my husband and I were on a family vacation, there was a grass fire in our yard just off Route 7.   It is my understanding that the Blue Ridge Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company, the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center Fire Department, and local citizens responded to extinguish the fire.   We don’t want to think about what would have happened if so many people had not pulled together to stop the flames.   Without the fast response, we could have lost our shed, boat, cars, and home.

We are so grateful and thankful for your assistance and commend you for your dedication and service to the community.
