Wonderful volunteers

Dear Editor,

We would like to express our appreciation for the McCloud Fire Department for responding so quickly and staying on the job until it was done. This week we had the unfortunate experience of our sprinkler system pipes bursting in the attic and flooding the building from the attic down through two stories into the basement.

They had over 15-20 persons (many volunteers) mopping up and trying to prevent further damage to our property. They worked for over five hours in the dark (no power) in very cold temperature until the water extractor company came in.

We were also impressed with the young Explorer fire fighters from McCloud High School. They were very professional and if I was a parent I would be real proud of them.

Yes, we still suffered damage to our stores, event space, and offices but it could have been a lot worse. We feel fortunate that we have wonderful people in McCloud that volunteer their time to make a difference.

Once again, thank you,

The McCloud Mercantile family
