Wow! Cortes Island Volunteer Firefighters responded to a horrendous blazing fire on Cortes Bay yesterday. HUGE thanks goes out to all firefighters, ambulance crew and any volunteering citizens of Cortes Island helping to extinguished this blaze. This crew was outstanding and worked so hard together from 5 am till dawn with little breaks.
Thank goodness this did not happen today’s windy day would be ever more challenging.

That's a huge fire! We SO fortunate to have such a great, dedicated fire dept.!

Do you know how it started? Personally, I think ALL fires should be prohibited now. Also any logging or anything else that could throw a spark.
So much appreciation

Wow, thank you so much, real community heroes that all of us are so grateful for! I had no idea that was happening. It's going to be a hot dry summer and all Cortesians need to be on our toes over this.
