Our son and daughter-in-law live on Old Toliersville Road and they along with their two dogs had to leave their house last night because of the danger of the fires. They spent the night at our house and as I'm sure like many families we were praying that their house would escape the flames. Our prayers were answered when we went back to the house to find it still standing. The only "damage" is the smell of smoke in and out.I'd like to say to those that were not as forunate as we were that our heart truly goes out to you and your family. Next, I would like to say God bless the many firefighters on the scene and to those that were behind the scene.The families of the firefighters that were probably on pins and needles waiting for their loved ones to return home safely.These people did one heck of a job containing the fire to prevent it from doing further damage to others. My hat goes off to every single one of you and I believe you are considered to be angels in the eyes of a lot of people.A simple thank you doesn't quite seem to be enough but the words are hard to find to describe the feelings in our heart. So often we take a lot for granted but I assure you, the next time I see a firefighter standing on the highway with a boot in hand, to collect money for their department I shall remember the fight you all fought to keep our much loved ones in their home. GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU.

I guess it is going to be hard for the nature to get revitalized after such a horrible fire. So much is destroyed.

I am not from Odessa and it is strange that my location is given here in such a weird way but it doesn't matter.

actually fire is beneficial. You'll find that an area that has been thru a fire is a healthier environment in the long term.
