Alpine Township firefighters conducted a training excercise Saturday morning that could just as well have been a response to a live fire. Property at 4343 Alpine Ave NW scheduled for demolition was deliberately burned as an excercise for firefighters. First the detached garage was burned with no or very little damage to the house or the surrounding brush and trees.. Folllowing that, the actual house was burned to the ground.Following are some pictures.
|First the garage. It was fully enflamed in just minutes and created an incredible heat|
|Then it was the house itself. An eery color came though the windows and door|
|A little late now to see if it is the right street address|
