Practice burn announced for June 22

Members of Clark County Fire District 6 will conduct a training house fire at 1119 NE 136th Street in the Salmon Creek neighborhood. The practice burn will take place this Thursday, June 22, at various intervals between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Training fires provide valuable experience for firefighters in a live-fire environment. They also help remove outdated and unwanted structures from properties. This is a special case because the structure to be burned sits on property that will soon be home to the new Fire Station 63–the replacement to the old Fire Station that is overcrowded and out of date.
