Firefighters deserve our thanks

Rock Creek residents Dave and Susan Carlson share their appreciation for fire fighters from the Midway Fire Department.

We’d like to thank the Midway fire chief, Walt Osellame, and his crew for their hard work fighting the fire on our property Sunday, July 27.

Even though we are not in their fire protection area, they arrived with three fire trucks and at least a dozen or more people. It is unfortunate that we live in such a large unprotected fire area, but we are very grateful that the Midway fire department stepped beyond their boundary to help us.

Without their exceptional effort, we feared that the fire would have spread to nearby forested areas or our home. They stayed for several hours extinguishing the fire. The forestry services then arrived and remained on scene checking hot spots.

We’d also like to give a special thanks to our neighbours Doug, Ed and Louise Fossen and family, who worked so hard to fight the fire as well.

We cannot express our appreciation enough to thank each and every one who worked so hard to help us.


Dave and Susan Carlson,

Rock Creek
