Letter: Grateful to Fire Departments

To the Editor:

I would like to thank the Fairlee, Orford, Thetford, Bradford and Piermont fire departments for their quick and professional response to a recent brush fire that had the potential to become very serious. Through their skilled efforts they contained the fire and prevented any loss. We should all be proud that we have such well-trained volunteer firefighters here in the Upper Valley. They rate among the best anywhere.

John Durgin
