If you spot a fire in Ridgefield this morning, don’t be alarmed.

Clark County Fire & Rescue will conduct the first of two live-fire training exercises this weekend beginning at about 10 a.m. today.

The structures were donated by the Port of Ridgefield, according to a media release.

Firefighters today will be at 298 S. 45th Ave. On Saturday they’ll be just a few blocks away, at 448 S. 45th Ave. The Saturday training, too, will be at 10 a.m.

South 45th Avenue, south of Pioneer Street, will be closed during the training sessions, which are expected to last several hours.
