  1. The fire at 171 Wolf Creek Pass was on the property belonging to my brother and I.

    We want to thank every one of the firefighters that came out. Because of your hard work, only grass, trees and my dad’s garden was lost.

    I also hope the firefighter is better that got too much smoke.

    Thank you again for being so quick to get there.
