Letter to the editor: Family thanks local firefighters

On May 16, our home in Weybridge sustained extensive damage from a fire. We write to express our most sincere thanks for the valiant efforts that members of the fire departments from Weybridge, Middlebury, Addison and New Haven made to deal with this unfortunate fire. We were travelling in Europe at the time of the fire but were kept informed by our two daughters, who travelled to Weybridge on the 17th, and by our good friend Ingrid Jackson who was at the house for much of the time on Wednesday.
We also want to thank the folks at Coop Insurance in Middlebury and their contractor Puroclean from Williston who have been at the house much of the time since the fire and have been doing wonderful work on our behalf. We have heard several times that the outstanding effort put forth by all of the firefighters made all the difference in keeping the damage to the affected areas.
Finally, we want to thank our neighbors, the Bagley’s, who not only saw the fire early on and assisted the first to arrive on the scene, but also provided food to the firefighters as they labored at the scene.
Betty and Pieter Schiller
Chatham, Mass.
