To the editor:

To all those who helped fight the fire:

Our land lies along County Road 267 in Brown County. We were involved in the fire last week, having some land burned. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the fire departments and all the groups supporting them for the excellent job they all did in controlling this big fire.

Thanks to the efforts of all these folks, a major disaster was avoided. It could have been so much worse. We lost no livestock or buildings, nor was anyone seriously inured.

Again, our thanks to everyone who helped and it makes your proud to live in Central Texas, where folks help each other.
