Three seperate small fires burning on steep slopes of a sand creeks can quickly burn twenty-five acres in a matter of minutes on these hot, dry, windy days. A frightening lesson learned by alert caring citizens driving highway 29 East of Mason on Tuesday, June 10. Thanks to these citizens who called 911 quickly, the reliable Volunteer Fire Departments arrived in time to quickly stop the spreading flames.
We want to thank all of those who called 911 to report the fires and all of those fire fighters who so quickly put out the rapidly spreading fires. And to the one who sacrificed that special enchilada dinner you had been wishing for, we hope you got back home in time to enjoy your share while it was still at it's best.
Gratefully yours, Herman and Jimmie Hitzfelder and Jennifer Hitzfelder
