Ankeny Fire Department to Conduct Controlled Burn Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017

Post Date:09/15/2017 9:09 AM
The Ankeny Fire Department will conduct a controlled burn on a house located at 2055 NW Irvinedale Drive, Saturday, Sept. 16, starting at 7 a.m. If weather conditions are not favorable, the event will occur on Sept. 23. The controlled burn provides an invaluable training opportunity for our firefighters.

Residents and anyone visiting Ankeny should not be alarmed by the smoke on Saturday. The public is encouraged to stay away from the house during the fire as parking is very limited on-site and smoke will be present.

Over the past three months, the Ankeny Fire Department held several on-site trainings at the house including investigations, room burns, rescue and escape tactics. The Ankeny Police Department, Community Emergency Response Team and Polk City Fire Department also used the house for training.
