I live three houses down from this fire. Many of the firefighters and volunteers worked tirelessly to put this one out. These guys ALL do a great job and, if I can speak for others, this community has a great deal of respect for these men and the jobs they do. Smoldering hay is very difficult to put out when there are large amounts. However, with a large backhoe on the premises, the hay could have been stirred and watered, possibly portions moved or turned over on an open area where it could have been thinned out and watered down to completely extinguish. Our hearts go out to these relatively new owners. The clean up, the salvage process, the restoration, even if another barn is not built, can be daunting. So, just another thank you to our fire department and a prayer for those who have to contend with the aftermath.
