“Yesterday, our community witnessed the destruction of two homes due to separate fires.  Thankfully, there was no loss of life, but 27 people have now been displaced.  Currently, the American Red Cross and volunteers are assisting these residents and I am sure that all of us in Mount Vernon will work together to provide any additional help needed.  I would like to thank the Mount Vernon Firefighters for their quick responses and bravery.”
