Clark County Fire District 6 will conduct a training burn today at an abandoned house in the Lake Shore area.

Firefighters will practice extinguishing the fire, search and rescue, and other firefighting principles at a house on the corner of 94th Street and 21st Avenue, just south of Columbia River High School. Crews will light the house on fire around 9 a.m., and the blaze will continue until the house is burned to the ground, which the department estimated would be around 3 p.m.

The department said that in addition to helping homeowners get rid of abandoned structures, the training burns provide valuable experience for crews.
