A Controlled Fire

What a treat! To continue with yesterday's language lesson on fire safety...the kids got to witness a rare "controlled fire" the local fire dept. was doing near my parents' house this morning. Gage had his customized rescue truck with us, and we sat in the neighbor's drive way while we watched and learned. They were burning an old house down the street and all the firemen gathered on the lawn to learn as they purposely set the place on fire. Too bad we couldn't hear, but this is about as close to another house fire as we want to get anyway.
