Behind a cone of water, a group of firefighters push forward approaching a flame, which climbs to 30 or more feet in the air. The flame jumps and whips in the breeze.

“This is true love here,” Don Regula said with a smile as tears formed in his eyes.
“It’s neighbors helping neighbors,” he said as he talked about the 30 people who came to help, taking a day off school or work, and in many cases a perfect day off from harvesting their own beans to help another farmer in need. “These guys have all got acres and acres at home and they gave up their fuel, equipment and time to help me.”

The conversion led to a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter Friday in their 29-26 win over the previously unbeaten Celina Bulldogs.
