A statement from owner: “Thank you ALL for helping save my barn and other out buildings!! The tractor shed was too far gone for you to help, One of your firemen helped me get my young chickens out of their house. You saved two chickens houses and a old wood building… that my Aunt and Uncle used as a cook house in the 60’s while building what is my home now. I appreciate all of your help!!” Susan Porter
