A statement about the fire at Moss Sawmills …
The fire did damage to the sling sorter, but we are so thankful no one got hurt. As I sit here tonight and reflect back on the day, I feel beyond thankful and blessed. We have the most amazing volunteer fire departments that are always going above and beyond to help our county and community in times of need. And while there was loss and damage to the building and equipment, the amazing thing is the hearts and dedication of those within our crew, ER services crews, and fire departments that has warmed my heart. Thank you to everyone who came out, called, and texted. I am so thankful to have such great family, friends, and co-workers that care so much. I only hate that I wasn’t there to help in some way, but my brother was there on a loader in the action (I’m glad he didn’t get hurt!). I love you all and appreciate everything. Our family is so grateful.
