Come together; prevent another fire

My husband and I lost our home in the Auburn (49) Fire. We are, of course, concerned that the person or persons responsible for setting the fire have not been identified. Like the other homeowners who have lived through a very difficult year, we also have a need to know exactly what happened that day and why our home was lost in the fire. For me, an even bigger concern than knowing why, is to make sure that something like this never happens again. Finding the person who started the fire and holding him/her responsible is only one part of the equation. Every time that I drive down 49 and see the overgrowth of weeds and grass in the area where the fire started, I am totally dismayed that whoever owns that property is not held accountable for maintaining their property, or at the very least, that the city has not taken responsibility for cutting the grass.  This has been a difficult year for many families living in Auburn. I believe that it’s time to come together as a community and do everything we possibly can to keep this kind of tragedy from ever happening to another family in Auburn. Peggy Mayer, Auburn
