Thanks to first responders

EDITOR: I would like to thank the Tri City Fire Department and the City of Globe Fire Department for responding to a late night fire in the Town of Miami on the night of July 23. This fire was located on the side of a hill and it was a house.

It was very difficult to get close to it to put it out, but the professionals of both fire departments worked together and extinguished the fire.

I also want to thank the residents and volunteers up on Cedar Circle for getting hoses out and spraying water on neighbors’ trees and houses just in case the fire jumped came up the hill.

Thank to the City of Globe’s Police Department, Gila County Sherriff’s Department, and the Miami Police Department, as well.

Plus, I want to think APS and Southwest Gas for responding.

Mayor, Miami, Ariz.
