Five local fire departments collaborated last night in a training exercise. Grand Rapids, Cohasset, Trout Lake, Hill City and Warba fire all participated in a live burn drill at the former Kirby Vacumm Cleaner/C.H. Kleffman/Cake Kingdom building on the corner of Highway 38 and 5th street north west.
Grand Rapids Fire Chief Mike Liebel said the building was donated by the Grand Rapids State Bank. He also said the collaborative training was helpful to all involved. Next Tuesday night, between 5-10pm, the building will be burned to the ground.
