Post Date:10/31/2018 1:14 p.m.

The Ankeny Fire Department will conduct a controlled burn on a house located at 2108 SE Oralabor Road, Wednesday, Oct. 31, starting at 2 p.m. If weather conditions are not favorable, the event will occur on Nov. 1. The controlled burn provides an invaluable training opportunity for firefighters.

Residents and anyone visiting Ankeny should not be alarmed by the smoke. 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 and Police departments have used the property for emergency response training.
