Firefighters shine

April 28, 2008 - Steve Murch
You know how sometimes when you read something, or see tape of it, you don’t get a real idea of what happened? That was the case for me with the fire in Grayling last week.

Driving through there Saturday, it was quite an eye-opener to see how close the fire came to town. The off ramp for northbound US-27 was jumped by the flames and the trees next to the parking lot of the Admiral gas station were burned. The fire came within about 150 feet of a business.

Driving both south and north on US-27 you gain a better perspective of what, where and how much the fire consumed. It gives you an even better appreciation for the job firefighter do in those conditions.

Traveling to Mt. Pleasant Saturday, most of the gas prices were in the same range — $3.65-3.70. The lone exception? The Admiral station that was closest to the fire — $3.48.
