Kriegler Farms survives mountain fire threat

Helicopter waterbombing fireThe professional fire fighters and the helicopter teams worked together with remarkable skill and courage in Sandhills yesterday. They undertook a very successful controlled burn to safeguard farm buildings and homes in our area. The precision water bombing of the pilots is incredibly accurate and we owe them and the ground fire heroes a big thank you for their help in safegauarding our property. The helicopters and ground crew worked together throughout the afternoon until early evening. The ground crews have been fighting the fires around us for three days and are back again this morning. They were also assisted by our own Kriegler Farms management and staff. The morning has dawned on our very blackened mountains but the farm buildings have survived unscathed. A very big thank you to all these teams.
