Oso fire captain lost wife, granddaughter in slide: ‘Can’t tell you how tough it’s been’
OSO, Wash. -- On Saturday, March 22, the volunteer members of the Oso Fire Department knew something was wrong. “It came in as a simple flood call with a barn roof on the road. From what I saw, it was huge. But I couldn’t understand how big it was,” Fire Department Chief John Harper said Friday.
