THANK YOU to our Fire Department!

Today, Thursday, August 21,  we had a fairly good blaze start between West Sidley Mtn Rd. and Raven Hill Rd., immediately adjacent Hwy 3.  A passerby reported the fire, and the Anarchist Mountain Fire Dept. (AMFD) responded, with about 15 volunteer fire fighters and officers getting to the scene in short order.

When the AMFD arrived, this fire was well engaged with grass, stumps and brush ablaze in about a 1 acre area. Your Fire Dept. got the fire contained in 30 – 60 minutes, and fully under control in less than 2 hours.  Provincial resources dropped 3 loads of fire retardant on the fire and Provincial crews were dispatched to take over the final extinguishing and to make sure this fire was totally out.

All residents and members of the Community Society shout out a big THANK YOU to our volunteer Fire Dept.!  Small fires become big fires, and these folks protect our community all the time.
