A Colorado Springs, Colorado man could tell firefighters battled to save his home. As he arrived home for the first time since the devastating fire, he could tell that the fire came within feet of destroying his home.
He also found something else- a note left behind by the Montana firefighters who saved his home.
As KKTV reports:
The paper was placed under a lawn decoration on their doorstep.
"It's really difficult you know. It's dated June 29th, and it says we removed one dead chicken from your coop. We gave them food and H20, signed Montana firefighters," Barker read.
When compared to homes lost, it's not that their chickens, or even the coop are all that important. It's just that the firefighters, from all the way in Montana, with so much on their minds, took a little time to help a little more.
Ken Barker added that he wasn't able to personally thank the firefighters, so instead he will send a personal thank you to the Governor.
