Marion County has fine firefighters

In recent weeks, a fine group of Marion County firefighters, including departments from Hillsboro, Marion, Durham, Lost Springs, Lehigh, Peabody, carried out a two-day practice exercise with the old house on our property southeast of Hillsboro.

A couple of weeks later, when the wind cooperated, Ben Steketee and the HillsĀ­boro crew burned the house down, also as planned. These processes were done very professionally and with utmost concern for safety.

We have realized more than ever before what a very fine group of firefighters we have in our county. We are blessed!

Our most since thanks to each of you firefighters, and may God bless you and your families.

Vince and Faye Ressel
