Controlled burn training

A fire training exercise took place in Snyder Circle on Saturday and Sunday, allowing firefighters from all over the region to increase firefighting skills during an advanced structural burn. Units 57 to 63 were burned on Saturday and units 53 and 55 were burned Sunday. Above, a stream of water is aimed out an upstairs window of unit 63 to clear the room of smoke and gas after the first fire was extinguished.
