Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Three major Wildfires are burning in Idaho and local firefighters and organizations have been called to the scene.
Making a difference is what seven Jerome firefighters and eight Salvation Army volunteers did while at the trinity ridge fire in Featherville.
Jerome fire battled flames for 16 days and Salvation Army served up meals for 11 nights.
"We constructed hand lines, we set up hoses and pumps stations, we scrapped and cleaned around residents for structure protection” said David Lacelle, Lieutenant Jerome Fire.
"We were feeding the people the workers, the first responders and some of the firemen and volunteers that helped otherwise” said Eddie Paterson, Major Salvation Army.
Featherville residents weren't just protected by the jerome crew, but also Filer and Gooding.
"They were extremely grateful, they were amazed that we came up and glad. They offered us places to stay, brought cookies."
Firefighter Larry Garey had one mission, to preserve Idaho’s forest.
"Being at the Featherville area is a place I visit for camping and hunting. I wanted to make sure I could do everything I could to preserve what we had up there” said Larry Garey, Firefighter Jerome Fire.
"To me it was an honor; it was a great honor to go to something like this” said David Lacelle, Lieutenant Jerome Fire.
An honor many don't get the opportunity to experience.
