Columbia resident Deb Schleh surprised firefighters when she showed up at a recent CBFD meeting with a bag of homemade treats. Schleh, of the 300 block of Walnut Street, wanted to express her gratitude to the fire department for all of their hard work in fighting a fire that consumed several homes in her block. She was most passionate about the lengths firefighters went to in trying to resuscitate her dog. She remarked about their degree of professionalism throughout the entire incident. The fire happened November 4, 2015, but Schleh said it took this long to get her home back to normal.
