LETTER: A big thank you to fire personnel

To the Editor:

This is a letter of praise for our Tramway Fire Department, as well as praise for all Sanford fire department branches.

About a month ago, some children accidentally started a fire in a pasture near Solid Rock Community Church. The fire spread quickly onto a creosote fence, which helped fuel the fire more as it leapt into some long leaf pines lining my driveway. Someone called Tramway Fire Department, and they promptly came and put out the fire.

Had it not been for Tramway Fire Department, I could have lost at least a half-mile of fencing and about 40-plus long leaf pines — and Lord only knows what else. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the Tramway Fire Department efforts.
