Controlled Fire

A few weeks ago the local fire department came out to burn some old buildings in our yard. They use them as practice burns so when the unexpected happens they are better prepared.

We had pushed one of the buildings off of its foundation and towards the other building to move it away from a steel grain bin.


They regularly sprayed water on the grain bin to keep it from becoming too hot.


It didn't take long for the fire to grow.







Towards the end, they let Jake help run the fire hose.


It only took about 1 hour and both buildings were gone. Those guys really know what they're doing, they do a great job!
