Brush Fire at the Mayor's Dahlia Plantation

by Bobby Blair
May 18, 2017

Well, this article is just a little embarrassing to write, a brush fire at my own farm.  Firemen were called to 260 Highland Street at 5:40 pm on Thursday for the report of a brush fire.

If there is any irony in this story it's the fact that on Tuesday my workers were unable to plant dahlia tubers as the freshly dug holes would fill with water.

Deputy Jim Moore and Capt.. Alan Greendale pump water from one brush fire truck to another. An engine truck after off loading its load of water resupplied from a hydrant on Garett Way. Deputy Chief Moore asked if they could use the water in my 3,000 holding tank. I said "Jim do you know how long it takes to fill that tank?

Firefighter Jim Rossini contains the flames. Half jokingly I said to Chief Cassidy "what do I name this article - Brush Fire at the Mayor's Plantation? Sure why not he said its good publicity. I hope I don't catch those little devils. Thanks HFD for your time and efforts.
