Family grateful for help of Millet Fire Department

Writer says fast response kept fire from spreading

Dear editor,

Regarding the fire at 2 a.m. on RR# 245 on October 17, 2018…

Dear Fire Chief Steve Moen and volunteer firefighters of the Millet Fire Department,

We want to formally and publicly thank you and your brave members for the excellent service provided on Oct. 17 at 2 a.m. when a fire broke out and burned out a house on RR# 245, just outside of Millet.

After an emergency call to 911 was made, very soon after the fire crews came and were able to save other dwellings in the vicinity, as well as trees, the surrounding valley and possibly fauna living in the shrubberies.

Thanks to you immediate response, the family and dogs were unharmed, for which we are very grateful.

Stacie and Spencer Tetlock

Jeanny Pontin
