Live fire training in Woodstock

The Woodstock Fire Protection District continues to train in a group of ¬†model homes that was offered for their use. Yesterday, yet another house provided multiple evolutions for room burns before it was burned to the ground. Tim Olk and Larry Shapiro were on hand to photograph the day’s events.

Tim submitted several images.
