Dear Editor,

To: Timbo Williams, Barnwell County Fire Coordinator; Jessie Elmore, Barnwell Rural Fire Chief; Andy Hogg, Long Branch Fire Chief; and Thomas Sharpe, Hilda Fire Chief.

On behalf of the Barnwell Airport Commission, please accept our grateful thanks and appreciation for an outstanding job by all the volunteer firefighters from Long Branch, Hilda and Barnwell Rural who responded to the fire at the Barnwell Airport on September 19.

Though five planes were destroyed, the firefighters were able to contain the fire to one end of the T-hanger building.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

Sincerely,
