We live in a small community. We already know how the fire was started. Young kids experimenting with smoking. I am very disappointed that this could have created such a terrible situation for my family and neighbours if the fire had spread any further than it did. The black burn marks in the field are just a mere 20 feet from our garage. I hope these young people will take a lot of time to reflect on their actions and even apologize for being so naive, careless and down right stupid in my opinion.
A special thanks to the Firefighters at the North River Fire Department. I am grateful for their hard work and dedication to helping others, especially those in a time of need such as this one. Thank-you to our wonderful neighbours that are always looking out for us. A special shout out to my family, I love you all and I am glad you are safe.
