Snohomish fire chief offers thanks to Bridgeport market, community


The M&R Supermarket in Bridgeport received a glowing review on social media Tuesday from an out-of-town visitor who was not your normal tourist-type visitor.

Travis Hots, chief of Snohomish County Fire District 22, said the market fired up the barbecue on the sidewalk outside the business Sunday night and fed their entire strike team, which has been in the county fighting the Pearl Hill Fire.

Hots said local volunteer firefighters and employees of the Sheriff’s Office also showed up for some of the special carne asada tacos.

Hots described both the meal and the Bridgeport community as “amazing.”
