Thank you to the Burlington VFD, the assisting town's VFD (we saw Terryville, East Litchfield, Canton, Bristol and Harwinton on our street) and the CT Forest Service for keeping us safe. These teams worked (and continue to work) so hard in difficult conditions to keep the fire under control and make sure they did not spread even as hot spots continued to flare throughout the weekend. On Saturday afternoon, as the fire approached the edge of Rock Rd; the teams evacuated the area, brought in the water they needed and stopped the fire from crossing the road into our yards. We are grateful for their service to our town.
