A professional effort by local firefighters

To the editor:

On behalf of myself and other Becket residents, I want to thank the volunteers of the Becket, Hinsdale and Otis fire departments for their excellent response the morning of Dec. 19 in controlling and suppressing the structural fire on Route 8 (Main Street) and Country Road.

Most of this took place in the dark in a confined area and freezing temperatures. All the firefighters were very professional and courteous. Thanks also to the Becket police, EMTs and highway department.
