We would like to thank the personnel from all of the area fire departments that responded to the fire in Elmer City on October 15, 2018. The high winds and encroaching darkness made containing the fire difficult and dangerous; however, these brave men and women worked quickly and efficiently to both contain the fire and prevent additional homes from being destroyed. Our home was surrounded on three sides with fire when it crossed Highway 155, and their efforts prevented any damage to our home. One firefighter had to climb a large tree in our yard with a chainsaw to cut a burning branch off in the dark. Again, we are very thankful for the wonderful job these brave firefighters do.
