Monday's live burn at 3655 Wyoga Lake Rd. was the culmination of a week-long training exercise to offer area firefighters the real scenarios they'll encounter on the job.
The Cuyahoga Falls Fire Department typically receives calls to put out fires, not to light them. However, the latter scenario played itself out when the owners of 3655 Wyoga Lake Rd. asked the department to burn their residence down. Falls Fire Chief Paul Moledor jumped at the opportunity. On Sept. 10, after almost a year of preparation, the department began a series of training exercises at the home in order to offer real-world training to scores of area firefighters. Departments from Bath, Garfield Heights, Mogadore and Stow were just some that joined Falls firefighters in the array of training exercises that included attacking and extinguishing fires and search and rescue. Refer to the video above for the full story.

The Bath Township Fire Department practiced fire drills Saturday morning on Montrose Avenue.
If you saw billowing smoke coming from behind the West Market Speedway Saturday, it was because the Bath Township Fire Department was burning down a house. The house on Montrose Avenue was donated to the department for fire training by Lobalzo & Sons, the company that owns the Starbucks plaza on West Market. Crews arrived early Saturday morning and practiced fire drills before burning the house to the ground. Were you at the training? Add your photos by clicking the "Upload Photos & Video" button.
