Kudos to firefighters

I want to thank all of the firefighters, both on the ground and in the air, who quickly and expertly handled the vegetation fire near Berryhill Drive and Main Street recently.

My home is on the other side of Main Street from where the fire started, and when the fire jumped to our side of the street, I was truly afraid I was going to lose my home. The pilots who dropped the fire retardant did so with pinpoint accuracy, and because of that, as well as the ground crews, my home is safe.

My father, husband and brother are all pilots, and I know how much skill and experience it takes to drop a load that successfully. Thank you!
