The Shickley Volunteer Fire Department had a controlled burn on Wednesday, March 18, consisting of a house and detached garage. Members of the department were able to practice setting up and running the various equipment. Two tanker trucks shuttled back and forth to keep the portable water tanks full and firefighters squirted nearby trees and buildings to keep them from catching fire. Newer department members also got some hands-on training during the burn. The house burns (above).
