Local Cub Scouts Thank Firefighters for Saving their Summer Camp in Clayton

July 19, 2014 18:00 pm · 10 comments


Just two days before camp was set to begin at Marsh Creek Springs, a vegetation fire broke out across the street from the Cub Scout Day Camp near Aspara Dr. on Marsh Creek Rd. last week.

The fire was extinguished within a few hours, but not before it forced residents to evacuate, and burned over 80-acres.

Fortunately, no homes were burned, and although the fire came within a few yards, the day camp was saved by firefighters from CalFire.

The Cub Scouts took a few minutes out of their day to say “thanks”, and pose for a picture with some of the firefighters who helped save the camp.

The sign their holding says “Thank You for Saving Our Cub Scout Day Camp CalFire”.

Very nice.

Thanks to Sandra for the picture!

That is "VERY NICE!" I am glad to see the appreciation. July 19, 2014 at 6:58 PM

It’s so wonderful to hear such good news as this, the firemen came in and rescued countless kids and the play area. Thank you brave men, this could have been a truly heartbreaking story.

Huge credit also to the parents who have shown their sons how to follow through on expressing feelings of gratitude!

And thank you as well, CalFire, for helping to create a treasured pictorial keepsake for these boys!

It was a honor to be a volunteer for this amazing Cub Scout day camp and a privilege to help the boys express their gratitude to CAL Fire for putting out the fire before it reached our camp. We are all truly greatful for your dedication, bravery and hard work!
