‘I have so much respect for Mother Earth , and Mother Nature … I expect to lose the fight but I’ll always give it my best shot,’ he wrote.
In the past Renner has also openly told of how he often spends time working with local fire departments, helping their teams and has even bought a spare fire engine.
‘I work with the fire departments up there and they are pretty awesome. They are teaching me and helping me, and I still have to get some more hours in with them.’
