Hutchinson County Boy Scouts held a special ceremony for flags damaged in the wildfire

Posted: Updated:
Fritch, TX - The Boy Scouts of Hutchinson County put on an honorable ceremony. 

The ceremony was for those flags that were damaged during the wildfire. 

Assistant Cub Master of Pack 565, James Murry says there were several flags displayed on people's homes that were wounded or burnt. 

But some didn't get completely burnt. People who had a damaged flag from The Double Diamond Fire brought it to be properly put to rest. 

"There's a special honor for the boys to be able to do this and to show respect on retiring a flag," said Murry. 

Which is appreciated from city officials in Fritch.

Captain of the Fritch Fire Department, Aaron Zink says the past weeks have been catastrophic, but the Boy Scouts are helping by bringing the community together.

"It's just another great example of our community pulling together," said Zink.

And with the community coming together, it helps to make them stronger to move on from something tragic.

"It's absolutely amazing. I feel like we're stronger than ever now," said Zink.

But the ceremony wasn't just for those who had damaged flags from the wildfire.

There were also people who had flags that no longer could fly and just wanted to show the flag some respect.
