To the Gazette:

We would like to thank Butler County Fire District #2 for their response to a fire on our property in rural Augusta.  Under the direction of Major Ray Marbut, the full time and volunteer firefighters worked many hours putting out 50 large bales of hay that were on fire. 

The fire was not only large, but also very labor intensive. 

These firefighters are not only a credit to their profession, but are definitely an asset to our community.  They truly deserve all of our admiration and respect for the job they do. 

Thanks again for a job well done.

Bill and Mildred Stovall
