DNR firefighters honored for Colfax Fire efforts
Michigan Department of Natural Resources firefighters and fire support staff have been honored with a special tribute “for outstanding service to the community” from the office of 102nd District State Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Cadillac, and the office of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for their work in protecting the public and property from the Colfax Fire in late May.
The wildfire burned 378 acres across Wexford County in the northern Lower Peninsula. As a result of the combined fire suppression efforts of the the DNR and partner agencies – both on the ground and in the air – 151 structures (86 residences and 65 outbuildings) were protected from the fire.
The special tribute read, in part, that that the firefighters and fire staff from the DNR and the Cadillac area are “… deserving of grateful recognition of … outstanding service to the entire community for containing the Colfax Wildfire. On this occasion, it is most appropriate to offer this expression of the value we all place on the work that this department has taken on and handled so well in seeking to protect the lives and property of others.”
