06-21-2014 Practice Burn - St Michaels Cemetery

This house was burned in a practice burn to teach newer firefighters how to attack a building fire.  The fire was lit a few times and put out.  The heat and humidity limited the amount of times the house could be used.  After about 1/2 dozen attacks, the house was let go and it burned to the ground.  The heat was unbearable for about 150 feet in front of the house.
