Thank you to fire brigade

2015-11-18 06:00

Sir, IT seems that, in the main, too many of us spend time discussing the downside of life in Greytown, however, here is a very different tale to share.

What Loretta and I need to do is thank Greytown, and the fire brigade in particular, for their extremely rapid­ response when our house caught fire at about 10.30am on Tuesday 3 November.

Loretta received a call from a neighbour to say "your house is on fire". We rushed there as fast as we could and arrived at the same time as the two fire engines.
Thank the Lord that in these waterless­ days, they carry water.

They rapidly brought the fire under control, preventing it from spreading into the main living area, and managing to contain it in the family­ room and laundry area.
Neighbours assisted in removing anything that could be rescued.

It goes to show, once again, that when trouble strikes, Greytonians pull together, big time.
Our sincere thanks go all who helped. I saw so many faces that day and would be hard-pressed to attempt to name them all.

May God bless you all.

Mike Allen
