  • North thanks fire department

    To the editor,

    This letter is to thank all the members of our local Cynthiana Fire Department for answering my 911 call so quickly Sunday night Nov. 23rd.

    They searched and searched my home to find what they said was methane gas order filling my basement and coming upstairs.

    They found where it was coming from behind a closed in wall. They advised me not to stay over nite in the home.

    By it being in the basement I chose to stay at home and open windows. And to stay with my two cats who came upstairs and warned me something was wrong in the family room.
