Our family would like to take this opportunity to thank the Washington and Northern Tazewell County fire departments and the Washington Police Department for their outstanding help with the fire at our farm Oct. 30.

We are very grateful for their quick response and the expertise they displayed.

We’re fortunate that the fire wasn’t more serious, and we owe that to the great volunteer fire departments and all the other brave men and women who helped.

We also need to extend a special thank you to Mary and Cindy for arriving first and making the important calls and staying until help arrived.

Jim, Linda, Katie
