We were down in Brookville around2 this afternoon, smelled the smoke and some some responders when headed home. Heard it is now contained.
 
I live real close to where the fire was (no, NOT in the adult communities!) I posted a mini-blog and a few photos of what went on today, at http://www.pineypower.com. It was so reminiscent of last year's fire...real scary! The response from other fire stations was amazing - Tuckerton, LEH, Warren Grove, Ship Bottom - they were the ones I caught sight of, and there were plenty more. These guys deserve so much credit. Who knows what would have happened if not for them! My house, and hundreds others, are safe because of you - THANKS!
