    Real blaze hits Ohio house used for fire training

    Wednesday, July 1, 2009

    (07-01) 12:03 PDT Sylvania, Ohio (AP)

    A vacant house in flames must have looked familiar to northwestern Ohio firefighters. Less than 24 hours earlier, they were at the same house putting out fires for a training exercise. The cause of the fire early Wednesday in the Toledo suburb of Sylvania is under investigation.

    On Tuesday morning, "controlled burn" fires had been set in the same house so four local lawmakers could suit up and accompany firefighters inside. The exercise was part of a program that gives officials a taste of what firefighting is like so they can understand fire department equipment and personnel needs.

    The property will eventually be cleared to become public parkland.

    That's the place!

    No, I don't believe they have it yet. Their 3 engines are still being built, too. I believe the engines were slated to be completed somewhere around the first half of September.

    They have been learning how to drive the tiller with the one they bought as a "training tiller". Rumor has it that they will send the Training tiller out for refurb after the new one is in service and then they will get rid of the current platform and aerial when the training one is done.
