Decatur Fire Department, your response time was absolutely unbelievable. I'm across the street. I called dispatch this morning, (which couldn't have been more than a couple of minutes after the fire had started), but hung up with them after just a few seconds because I could hear your sirens right around the corner. Thank you so very much for everything you did today.

I've seen this house before. Be safe

Friends of our son used to live there years ago

Be safe DFD

Dustin Studebaker I saw them and police!
