Dear Editor:

I can’t say THANK YOU enough to all the people who worked so hard (and fast) putting out the Canada Hill Fire. We live on Canada Hill, Dewey Avenue, just below the fire and believe me, too close for comfort. It was simply amazing all of the planes, helicopters, fire trucks and firefighters that were here working to put out the fire.

At one point, we noticed two small fires moving towards our neighbor’s propane tank and notified Orofino Police Department and an officer came immediately and put them out. We were watering our yard and got a shower from one of the planes. I was just happy they were there.

We had been down at the park that morning for the Old Fashioned Sunday and bought mugs and tee shirts from the Clearwater Valley Fire District Auxiliary. I wish we had given them a larger donation!

Once again, Thank you so much. We are so thankful to you.

Deanna Dawson
