Firefighters burn to learn

by: WOODBURN FIRE DISTRICT  - Volunteer and career firefighters received 'Live Fire' training Saturday at Wilson Construction in Woodburn. Woodburn Fire District crews practiced live fire training Saturday at a building on Progress Way.

The two-and-a-half-hour training allowed crews to rotate firefighters in and out of the burning building into different rooms like in a real fire event, said Lt. Robb Gramzow of WFD.

“It was as close to a residential structure fire as you can come,” Gramzow said.

The building was donated by Wilson Construction, which is in the process of upgrading its facilities, he said.
