The Ruston Fire Department in Partnership with the Bates Technical College Fire Training will be conducting a live fire training exercise at 5212 North Shirley. The proposed burn date is Saturday the 19th of February 2011. The exercise will commence at approximately 8:30 a.m. and will conclude at approximately 5 pm.  This type of live fire training is an invaluable tool for fire service personnel.  We will be conducting a series of small burns for the first few hours with a final burn in the early afternoon.

Here's an example of a practice burn that we managed in 2008:
