Together They Quelled The Fire
Last updated 1/25/2021 at 3:04pm
Flames started on the roadside. Bunker Hill on my small farm on Green Road was quickly obscured by smoke as the fire spread. Dozens of folks with the Rosman, Lake Toxaway, Brevard and Connestee Volunteer Fire Departments, plus personnel from the N.C. Forest Service and Transylvania Sheriff Department, mobilized to quell the blaze whipped by the wind.
They are always ready to risk, to give, to help others for the common good. Thanks to the committed community of firefighters who averted a catastrophe. Together, they did it. We can too.
