Many thanks to the unknown gentleman who had the presence of mind and determination to stop and warn us of the recent fire at our home on Arlington Road. You undoubtedly saved us and our pets from injury or death. You truly were our Guardian Angel.

Also, thank you to all of the Utica Fire Department and Utica Police Department first responders who extinguished and investigated the fire. Your expertise, skill and professionalism are second to none.

A heartfelt thanks to you all.
