Beware, It’s Grass Fire Season

Dear Editor,

To: Family, Friends, Farmers and Fire Departments

It’s grass fire season, and it hits some of us more than others, and often at the most inopportune times.

On Tuesday, April 18, 2023, I had taken a few days to visit family out of town, and I started to receive calls that there was a fire at our rural property west of Three Hills. That is certainly a way of taking the joy out of being gone from home. Then I received calls of family, friends, farmers and fire departments coming to the rescue. In what seemed like an eternity, a few hours later everything was under control. There was no loss of life or property, only charred fence posts and blackened hay and grain fields that are already becoming quite green.

Thank you,

John and Susan Hamm
