“I just remember the fire — how everyone came and looked at the fire; people crying.” — Debra Flores

“We were eating dinner and I said, ‘Oh, I saw some fire trucks down at Farmland.’ And then within about two hours, it was a big blaze. … I wish we would’ve spent more time developing that land. In 10 years, we haven’t developed it very well.” — Larry Tuohy

“It seems to me that it displaced an awful lot of workers and a lot of immigrant workers. It had a huge impact on the community long term.” — Doug Dunbar
