Storms: Thanks Central Volunteer Fire Department, First Responders and Law Enforcement

Storms: Thanks Central Volunteer Fire Department, First Responders and Law Enforcement

Just a quick thanks. As a resident of Maysville/Cooper Estates off of Ryland Pike, I would like to say thank you to the Central Volunteer Fire Department, First Responders and Law Enforcement. You did a fantastic job helping and serving our community during and after the storms last night and early this morning. As someone who works the second shift for a government organization, my ride home near damaged areas on Ryland Pike, allowed me to have contact with many of these great people. They were all courteous while assisting with directions while standing in the rain directing traffic and removing safety hazards. Thanks for all you do.

Fire rages at cedar mill on Maysville Road next to Cooper Estates


Fire rages at cedar mill on Maysville Road next to Cooper Estates

Plumes of Smoke as seen from Cooper Estates
A fire that began around noon today rages on at CedarSafe in Maysville. The cedar mill sits on Maysville Road next to the Cooper Estates subdivision. Plumes of smoke can be seen rising from the area as people in the Cooper Estates development watch from their yards and homes. The fire appeared to have subsided around 12:20 when minutes later it appeared to reignite as it spread to other buildings on the cedar mill property. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. WAFF has posted an article with several pictures. The article can be found at: http://www.waff.com/story/30462142/units-responding-to-fire-at-cedarsafe-in-maysville . The pleasant aroma of burning cedar can be enjoyed for miles as the rain and clouds hold the smoke low to the ground. The cedar mill sits on the Flint River where canoeist traverse the slowly moving waters as they flow through this beautiful part of Madison County. The river flows under Ryland Pike at the bridges and on toward the beautiful property owned by the Saints M/C who hosts the LL Memorial and River Raft Race every year.     READ MORE HERE
