I'd like to commend the men and women from the Lodi Fire Department, and surrounding areas, for their quick and swift response to the recent building fire at Rashid Imports in downtown Lodi.
Within a matter of minutes, crews were on scene securing the area, setting up a command post and working throughout the night and following day to ensure that surrounding downtown buildings remained safe.
Although it is always tragic when a valuable piece of our downtown history is lost, the efforts these fine people made should not be overlooked and are worthy of much praise.
On behalf of downtown Lodi merchants and their employees, I'd like to thank you for your unwavering dedication and support of our community.
