To the editor:

A big thank-you to the Walmart management and employees, who came to my aid in the parking lot when an electrical problem caused a fire in my car on Friday afternoon, May 23.

Also a big thank-you to the prompt courtesy service of the Newton Fire Department, which came to check it out.
