Live fire training burn in Fife develops firefighting skills

Tacoma Fire department conducted a live fire training burn of a house located at 1623 62nd Ave. E. in Fife on Aug. 20.

Live fire training in a controlled environment is valuable tool to develop firefighting skills. Nearly 30 firefighters and staff participated in a variety of drills throughout the day. Training objectives included interior fire attack, hose handling, and using a thermal imaging camera to search for and observe fire behavior.

TFD’s training center staff coordinated the regulatory aspects of the burn and there were no injuries to report.
