Wednesday, July 13, the Pocatello Fire Department will be using a live-fire exercise to help train firefighters. For the burn and learn, the department will start actual fires in a controlled setting at the vacant home located at 3749 Jason Avenue. Crews will begin setup at 8 a.m. with training scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Firefighters will remain in the area until approximately 5 p.m. Motorists are asked to use alternate routes as there may be heavy smoke in the area, creating a low visibility situation. Burn and learns are conducted in accordance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and National Fire Protection Agency standards. Residents with questions about the exercise are invited to contact the Pocatello Fire Department at 234-6201.
