Thank you for the excellent coverage in your paper regarding the Water Wheel Fire.
I am a permanent resident of Beaver Valley and I am very grateful and thankful that the response to this fire was timely and efficiently carried out by all those involved. These prompt joint efforts saved our homes and our beautiful valley.
The Payson community should be thanked for the assistance offered to evacuees. I am sure my gratitude is shared by all residents. I appreciate the compassion and community spirit that is part of living here.
It was a frightening experience to view this fast-moving fire on Sunday afternoon and realize that Beaver Valley could be destroyed. Except for the services provided by good, caring people, this could have been a catastrophe that would have changed our lives and community forever.
