Controlled burn – Three Bridges Road – Federalsburg, Md.

2/12/2011 – On Thursday the 10th at 7:00 PM Station 100 (Federalsburg) and Station 200 (Preston) conducted a controlled burn of a large farm house, two buildings and a large pile of debris on Three Bridges Road.

Crews took turns extinguishing fires in several rooms on the second floor before moving to the front room on the first floor. A fire was set in the front room and several probationary members were able to go in and observe the behavior of the fire as well as experience the heat.

Once the training exercise was complete the structure was let go and burned.
