Oyster River Fire Crews will be taking advantage of a rare training opportunity today.

Fire Chief Bruce Green says they’ll be burning a house down on Enns road.

He notes they were approached about this a while ago by the owner of the property.

Green says crews have done some prep work before the burn. He says they need to make sure there’s no asbestos or flammable materials.

He notes they take off all the carpeting and shingles from the roof to make sure everything’s environmentally friendly.

Green estimates it’ll take about 2 hours for the house to burn to the ground.
