Local Firefighters Conduct Practice Burn

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. — South Lane County Fire and Rescue firefighters participated in a Live Fire Training event Sunday.

Firefighters experienced fire suppression first hand at a Cottage Grove house intentionally set on fire. The vacant house, located at 676 North 11th Street, had been donated by the Bernice Thoreson family for the exercise.

Usually, Live Fire Training is only available during an actual emergency, but South Lane County Fire and Rescue has more chances to train in the spring when it burns a few more houses in the Cottage Grove and Creswell areas.
