To the editor:
On Saturday, Sept. 29, my elderly mother and I experienced a fire in our apartment.
At approximately 6:15 a.m., we were awakened by the Peabody Fire Department knocking on our door. As smoke filled our apartment, we vacated the building under the guidance of the firefighters. In a calm, organized manner, they quickly extinguished the fire.
We were very impressed with the firefighters’ concern for not only our safety and well-being but the care they displayed for our belongings and furnishings.
We are extremely grateful to the Peabody Fire Department for their professionalism and compassion.
