Volunteer Firefighters Save the Day . . . and A Lot of Homes

Published on October 1, 2007 by Sherri Dodsworth under Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe

House Burned in Sunday FireI can’t say enough good things about our volunteer firefighters. They are just incredible. On Sunday they came to the rescue once again when high winds whipped a fierce fire down the beach from the Dunes Club west all the way to Jubilation, scorching about 12 acres of land in between. Although a number of homes suffered some damage from the searing heat, such as melted vinyl siding or broken windows, it is truly a testatment to their courage, skill, and tenacity that only one home was lost. Hats off to our true local heros, the South Gulf County Volunteer Fire Department.
