Countryman residents say thank you to fire crews
I join many friends and neighbors who live in the Countryman Creek Ranch Association area to thank the volunteer firefighters who bravely fought the fire in some difficult terrain and access.
The firefighters came from various communities in a great time of need. Although we are saddened for the loss of two homes and the grief that causes for those two families, these firefighters saved many other homes. They did risk their lives for our safety.
I thank God for their willingness to serve this community and for their skills. I pray that as a community, we can also help those families who suffered the great loss of their homes and possessions.
