Commendation to fire departments


To the Editor:

Garth and I live at 57 Denoon Street and as such, had a front row view of the fire.

Having grown up in town and having seen tremendous losses by fires, I was probably not as calm as I should have been. Having said that, I was totally impressed with how the conflagration was handled, ultimately tamed and, most importantly, contained.

We cannot express our appreciation enough for the volunteer fire coverage in the County of Pictou. All departments work amazingly well together to keep us safe and property damage minimized under usually horrendous circumstances.

Two citizens of Pictou thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
