A big thank you to Templeton Fire Department!!!!!
 

At 15:29 on 10/13/2013 Templeton Fire Department (TFD) and CDF responded to a vegetation fire on Bennett Way. On arrival the fire was extinguished by the homeowner. One engine from TFD remained on site, all other equipment was cancelled.

TFD personel mopped up. The fire burned a strip of vegetation approximately 75′ x 20′ with no damage noted. Hot ashes had been placed near the origin of the fire earlier in the day.

Homeowner’s account of the incident:

A big thank you to Templeton Fire Department!!!!! Sorry to have called them out to work on a Sunday afternoon but my back yard is no longer on fire. Burned right up to the house but structure and everyone inside is safe and sound. All is well again, except my feet. Ran out barefooted and grabbed hose once I opened the door and saw the blazing mess. Suffice it to say the adrenalin kept me from feeling searing flesh as my feet ran across smoldering ash. Rod Hewitt and crew were awesome as always. Great job!! Thanks again!
