San Marcos community thanks firefighters

Posted: Updated:

SAN MARCOS (CBS 8) - A community block party grew into a very special celebration Saturday in San Marcos. 

The Cocos Fire burned right up to the edge of the Savona Condo complex near Cal State San Marcos.

Saturday, residents of the community had their annual block party. But instead of the usual food and fun, residents invited firefighters and first responders as a way of saying thanks.

"The idea came up from one our residents - that it would be a great opportunity to thank the first responders - and so it snowballed into that to continue and be thankful of the homes we're in, and the homes we still have and the friends that got us through the tough times," said party organizer Sunshine Berry. 

Some units in the complex were damaged but no homes were lost.
