May was quite an adventurous month for the Gunlock Volunteer Fire Department. Twice in the same week, a fire broke out near the campground just off of the Overhang Cliff turn near the Bowler’s field. It was determined that camp fires were the cause of the fires.
Both fires caught in the roots of several dead cottonwood trees causing the fire to travel underground through the interconnected root system.
The GVFD would like to remind everyone that is planning on camping this summer to take caution with your fires and don’t assume that the fire will go out on its own. Please put your fires out completely. Help prevent wildfires, protect our regional firefighters, and save your tax dollars.
On Tuesday, June 2 at 7pm after the Town Hall meeting, there will be a planning meeting for anyone that would like to help plan the Fireman’s Ball to raise money to build the new fire house.
