The recent Wye Fire had no sooner broken out when Cori Darling from Foods, Etc. called the Lake County Fire Department to ask where to send sandwiches and water to the firefighters on the fire line.
After giving Cori the information, I asked, “Doesn’t the store close soon?” Her reply was “We will stay open as long as we have to.”
On behalf of the fire department, I would like to thank Foods, Etc., as well as everyone else in the community, for their generous support of our men and women on the fire lines.
