We wanted to share our sincere thanks to the Fire Departments of Mountain Village, Telluride and Placerville for their excellent response and efforts to save our home from the recent roof fire on Saturday evening, April 6.  Within a few minutes of the fire being reported, units were on the scene and remained there through the very difficult process of locating, accessing and extinguishing a very hot, and potentially disastrous fire which was concealed within the roof structure of  our townhome and the adjacent unit.  We are very fortunate that the  combined departments had the equipment, manpower and training necessary to quickly access a fire which was almost 40 feet off the ground and embedded within a very complex roof structure.  The coordinated team approach utilized ensured not only that the fire was contained before involving more of the structure, but that the firefighters involved were able to do so with relative safety ensuring no injuries to the fire teams or others in the area.  We were amazed and most thankful for the  effectiveness of the efforts expended to move and protect our furnishings while fighting  such a challenging fire minimizing the amount of water damage incurred.  We are very fortunate to have such dedicated and competent firefighters standing by to protect our communities and Joani and I are eternally grateful for your efforts on our behalf!  Thank you!
