Greening Up and Drying Out


Folks at the Taftsville Store saw flames and smoke up on the hillside and called 911.

One Taftsville resident was about a mile down the road when friends called to ask if her house was on fire. She saw the smoke and race home thinking about her cat. Cat took off. House untouched. Linda’s parking indicates an adrenaline filled screeching stop in front of her door.

BTW, we originally failed to mention that Hartland Fire and Forestry responded to the scene as well as Woodstock. No one hurt. All looked splendid in their daffodil yellow NOMEX – so springy!

Check with local fire authorities before you burn…grass may not be as green as it looks?
