15 members of the Knoxville city and rural fire departments participated in a controlled burn this past weekend to help prepare firefighters for real emergencies. The structure that was burned was a home at 301 West Marion Street in Knoxville and it, along with the adjacent property are included in the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The burn began just after 6:30am Saturday and was finished by about noon. Knoxville Fire Chief Mike Roberts says exercises like these help train new firefighters in a hands-on experience and serves as a refresher to seasoned firefighters as well and is something they are not allowed to do too often. Habitat for Humanity will build homes at the 301 West Marion location and on the adjacent property.
