Timberlake Ranch Fire Alert - 3/10/2016

The Timberlake Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire on Quail Road today, March 9, 2016.  Unfortunately, the fire appeared to have been started intentionally.  Please be aware and report whenever you might be suspicious of a fire; such as smoke in the sky or smelling smoke in the air.  Do not assume that it’s a campfire or someone’s fireplace.  Please contact either Andy Wilson (783-4704), Bill Sanders (783-2463), or 911 and report the location.  If we hadn’t discovered the fire early, many acres would have been damaged and the fire would have been more difficult to put out.

Sincere thanks to Nancy Dobbs for reporting the fire and to Bill Wolford, George Dobbs, Wayne Ramm, and Mike Henderson for putting the fire out.  It is nice to see neighbors coming together to handle such situations.
