Thanks |


I want to personally thank all of the firefighters and federal resource managers for their incredibly rapid response to the Panorama Fire.

It is clear to me that the combined efforts and apparent lack of jurisdictional disputes allowed this fire to be contained within 30 hours. Without such cooperation, the fire would still be burning.

Thanks also to the local media, American Red Cross and local law enforcement for keeping us informed.

My deepest sympathy to everyone who lost so much in this fire.
