The Fire Chief says the hardest about this fire was getting enough water to fight the flames.

“The water supply. Water supply was the worst…we ran out of water at the pond. So we had to regroup and call some tankers in to establish the water supply,” said the Chief.

Some of the trucks were making runs to and from a nearby pond to keep tankers loaded.

The Red Cross will be assisting the people that live there.
