Controlled Burn

IMG_5683

The Bowmansville volunteer fire department had a heyday this evening when they set a house on fire, for training purposes.  Volunteer fire companies live for this kind of opportunity.

The old brick house on Pavement Road is being torn down.  The fire company would have preferred to burn it to the ground but because the bricks are being salvaged the company was only allowed to put in some smoke pots and other things to make it hot and smokey, good enough for the guys to get some experience with smoke and darkness and hard-to-breathe, smelly places.

There must have been 30 or 40 firefighters at the scene.  I sure hope there are no other fires in Bowmansville right now.
