I am pleased to update everyone on the unknown fire fighter who put the fire out at Mel's Foodliner tonight. It is Rick Harp who just happened to be at the grocery store when the fire was discovered.
Rick is no stranger to heroism. Until just recently, Rick has been a deputy for the Wichita County Sheriff's Department. He is now going to college to become an accountant while his wife is studying to become a registered nurse.
Rick is married to Marti Keltner-Harp. They have several children. His parents are Richard and Debbie Harp. All live in Wichita County.
Thank you, Rick, for your fast thinking and efforts to thwart a serious tragedy from happening!!!
