LETTER: Mission firefighters deserve our thanks

This fire could have caused much more damage to other homes in theneighbourhood

A big thank you to Mission’s fire department and all of the first responders.

My wife and I live on Lightbody Court in Mission and our home is located right next to the large house fire that happened on Nov. 18.

Even though the home that had caught fire was destroyed, the homes on either side were saved with very little damage.

Unfortunately, the neighbours of the burned home lost personal items, but no one was seriously hurt. This is due to the response from Mission’s fire department and the crew that responded to the fire.

They did an outstanding job. This fire could have caused much more damage to other homes in the neighbourhood. They deserve thanks, along with our police, medics and many other people who kept the neighbourhood safe, organized and secure to allow the firefighters to do what they do best.

My wife and I would like to thank the fire department and all other first responders who made quick work of this house fire.

We would also like to send out a big thank you to our neighbours who responded quickly to make sure the people in the home on fire got out safely along with the people in the two homes on either side of the burning home.

This is while a neighbour(s) was calling 911 and well before the arrival of the fire department. Their quick action was outstanding and very much appreciated.
