Son Shine Inn thanks firefighters

The pre-kindergarten class at the Son Shine Inn Preschool colored posters on Friday to thank the firefighters working on the Decker Fire. About 15 kids from Bonnie Pacheco and Cindy Williams’ class added artwork and colors to the posters. Pacheco said after they talked with the class about the fire and why the kids had to stay inside, the students got excited and worked hard on the posters to say thank you to the firefighters and pilots.

Decker Fire officials reported that firefighters do not need housing, even with the cold weather expected for Thursday and Friday.

A report sent out Tuesday afternoon said, “We just wanted to clarify; the firefighters do not need housing.

“There is some very cold weather on the way, and we have an incredible team of logistical support that has been planning for this weather event for several days. “

Firefighters will have warm places to sleep, heaters, and equipment to dry their clothes, right here at the Incident Command Post.

“The Chaffee County Fairgrounds has been a great partner for us.

“We do, however appreciate the community support and intention to help wherever needed.

“You are a pretty awesome bunch!!”
