A big THANK-YOU to all the firefighters who aggressively attacked and extinguished the moran creek fire. The fire was headed to Arden Butte Rd where there are many residential homes. I'm sure without these trained fire professionals in our back yards we would have lost many homes and even lives. Thank you soooooo much! There are no words... Also, thank you to Local and State personnel who approved all these resources including the aircraft assualt which was a huge game changer. On behalf of all the residents on Arden Butte Rd.... Thank You!
