Thank local responders

Posted: Friday, November 30, 2018 2:32 pm | Updated: 2:34 pm, Fri Nov 30, 2018.

This week a building in downtown Fort Payne caught on fire. The building was vacant, thankfully, but if it had not been for our Fort Payne fire department and their quick response to get the fire under control, it could’ve caused so much damage to our historic downtown.

Fire chief Ron Saferite and his crew of Fort Payne firemen were out at 9 that night fighting this fire while most of us were asleep in our warm beds. Saferite called for all back up and had almost 100 percent of his men showed up that were off duty.
