Wellington Street Practice Burn in Cherryville, North Carolina

These are pics of the Cherryville Fire Department in action during a practice burn on Wellington Street, in Cherryville, North Carolina.

It's not a working house fire, but a practice burn.

We are a small town and don't get that many working house fires.

This took place on the night of October 24, 2005.

We were burning down a two- story house for Second Baptist Church, so they could add more parking.
