Thanks: Controlled burn a success


We would like to extend a special thank you for all those who helped demolish our old home in a fire training exercise on May 22.

Thanks to the Smith River, Crescent City, Klamath, Fort Dick, Pelican Bay and Gasquet fire departments; Richard Hopkins for providing heavy equipment; and Joe's Chevron for providing the combustibles for their fine work in this arduous endeavor.

Not only was the event great fun to watch, we hope it provided valuable training to the firefighters involved.

The 1873 pillar-and-post construction house in Smith River was too

old to repair and too dangerous to harvest redwood from and was

beginning to become a hangout for transients.

A special thanks goes out to Glen Hill and Troy Wood of Smith River

Fire and Ryan Wakefield of Crescent City Fire who coordinated the


And thanks also to Kevin Dittmar (of Dittmar Fencing) for his hundreds of hours of labor.

And thanks go to all the neighbors who endured all the smoke created by this operation!
