Firefighters handled Lightner Creek fire well

We want to thank the many personnel who performed an outstanding job with the fire at Lightner Creek. We were notified by the automated alert system and kept updated throughout the evening. The system appears to work well, and in this case provided advance pre-evacuation notification.

The professional attitude of the firetruck operators who assessed our property was exceptional, in our opinion. Although everyone is at risk during a wildfire, the firefighters who stopped gave us confidence that our property had a chance of survival had the fire expanded into this area. Thank you and God bless all the wonderful firefighters who are there for us.
