On behalf of the residents of Lizard Head Land Company and Trout Lake Land Company, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Telluride Volunteer Fire Department and the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Department for your response to the cabin fire late on the night of July 4, 2014.
Although it is unfortunate that one cabin was destroyed, we are truly thankful for your professional actions. You are to be commended on your performance of duty under difficult conditions: darkness, considerable traffic, and a remote location you had to navigate in order to protect individuals, put out the fire, and prevent what could have been a catastrophic spread to neighboring structures.
Again, thank you for your service to the greater Telluride community.
– Richard Weil, President, Trout Lake Cabin Owners Association
