Thank you, firefighters!


With the exception of the SUV with the message on its window, the rest of today’s slideshow photos were taken in and near Igo.

OK, so there was that one unfortunate tale about some Igo residents upset when the Bud truck couldn’t get through.

Overall, this tiny community — and all the others of every size throughout the north state — is filled with gratitude. We thank the firefighters and all the other agencies that helped extinguish the fires and keep us safe.

Have a safe weekend. See you Monday.
