On Friday, Jan. 6, we experienced a house fire at the Crouch House Bed & Breakfast outside of Huttonsville.
The response time of the Huttonsville, Valley Head and Mill Creek fire trucks and firemen was phenomenal. Had they been a minute or two later, I'm sure the mansion would have been engulfed in flames.
I wish to express my extreme gratitude to these men for their promptness, professionalism, bravery, teamwork and compassion. I will be forever indebted to them.
The next time you are asked to donate to your local fire department, please give generously. The job they do is not an easy one. Think about that stack of photo albums sitting on your shelf or your pet, or your family heirlooms ... yours could be the next they save.
Again, from the bottom of my heart - I thank all of you guys for everything you did. You were incredibly amazing.
