Santaquin to honor area firefighters

SHARE Santaquin to honor area firefighters

SANTAQUIN — Residents will honor the firefighters who saved their homes recently during a parade and brief ceremony on Sept. 10.

The Mollie Fire, which started near Santaquin Canyon, came within just a few feet of some of the homes on Santaquin's east bench before firefighters from around Utah County pushed back the flames. An equipment parade of fire trucks and other firefighting apparatus will start at the east end of Santaquin's Main Street and finish at the west end at Bowery Park, where the firefighters will be honored in a brief ceremony, said Annette Bott.

"Santaquin's not very big, so it will be a short parade," she said.

Residents may also write histories of how the fire affected their lives and give them to Bott at the ceremony. She plans to compile them into a book, she said.
