Fire fighters’ training session cancelled

Staff reports

A paperwork glitch has canceled a fire fighter training session scheduled for this weekend in downtown Gardnerville.

“There won’t be a burn on Sunday,” East Fork Fire and Paramedic Training Captain Dave Drew announced Friday.

“It would have been a great training opportunity for us and saved the owners some pretty stiff dump fees, but it wasn’t meant to be,” he said.

The fire district was scheduled to burn an old residence on Eddy Street near the intersection with Highway 395.

Drew said there will be other training sessions focusing on structure fires in the future. He said the district will keep volunteers and the public informed.
