Area firefighters train with ‘fire tree’ in Mitchell
Published 04/12/2010, The Daily Republic
The flames shot high into the air, putting out heat that could be felt 30 feet from the “fire tree” they originated from.
But that didn’t discourage a team of area firefighters from slowly approaching the blaze with a running hose and fierce looks of determination.
The training event, held at the corner of 15th Avenue and the Highway 37 bypass on Saturday afternoon, was the final part of a firefighter certification course that began Jan. 21.
