STATEHOUSE – “My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families in North Vernon, whose homes and businesses were affected by the recent fires. Although the devastation cannot be overstated, I want to commend the brave responders, from North Vernon as well as several surrounding counties, who rushed to the scene to extinguish the fires and keep everyone safe. Their heroic acts deserve our highest thanks and praise.

“Although many buildings were destroyed, the fire could not damage the strength and resolve of the folks in this community. Our prayers and support go out to the people of North Vernon for continued resilience during this period of rebuilding.”
