On Friday, Aug. 16, the 116-acre fire started at Shenandoah High School in El. Dorado. Residents at Lake Oaks Senior Mobile Home Park
were soon aware of the fast-approaching firestorm. Firefighters, at all levels were soon arriving; helicopters dropped buckets of water from Lake Oaks; equipment creating fire breaks and ground crews surrounding the area.
To realize this awesome response from hundreds of all kinds of firefighters was truly our blessing; we pray none of you were injured. We’ll never know all of your names to recognize each one of you but please know how grateful we are for your amazing attack on that firestorm that devoured beautiful historic trees and growth.
A “million thanks” for your fantastic job in saving all our homes at Lake Oaks, and keeping the fire damage to a minimum. Thanks to all those patiently directing us and keeping us informed of the progress.
