The Knoxville Fire Department and Knoxville Rural Fire Department conducted a hands on training exercise today. A dilapidated home that is part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program was burned down Saturday morning to serve as a refresher for Knoxville Firefighters. Fire Chief Mike Roberts says this is a rare opportunity since the home was to be demolished anyway and the lot next to it is already vacant. The controlled burn began around 6:30am Saturday and Roberts says were finished by noon. Knoxville Zoning Administrator Cindy Glick says the remains of the home will be removed by the company contracted for that location next week. Habitat for Humanity will build houses on this lot and the adjacent one.
