Weekend Fire in Charles City a Training Exercise

A fire in Charles City Saturday (02.03) morning was a training exercise for area firefighters.

Charles City Fire Rescue, along with the Colwell and Floyd fire departments, were able to utilize a house on South Iowa Street to work on different firefighting tactics as well as introduce newer firefighters to the evolution of a fire.  As training concluded, firefighters allowed the structure to burn in a controlled manner, which will allow the owner to clear the lot.
