How does one even begin to express their gratitude to the ones who choose to put their lives on the line everyday? The ones that go running into a fire when everyone else is running out. The ones that give up time with their family to help yours and mine.

Thank you to the Rush City, Braham, Pine City and Harris fire departments for doing exactly that. Your courage, hard work and selflessness will never go unnoticed by us.

While we may have lost a home, we know that we will never lose the support of our community.

A special thank you to Chief Bob Carlson.

Thank you firemen,


Patrick Blatz, Abby Kloos and the Blatz family
