The family would like to give a huge thank you to all the firefighters, Kiowa County Sheriff’s Office, and Kiowa County Emergency Management for acting as quickly as they did! They support and hard work for the four hours it took to put the flames out can never be repaid, and there are no words that can express how much you are appreciated! There are so many more to thank.
