[bitsontherun IqOTTT01]COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)-Cold weather often means more house fires for fire departments across the region. Columbus firefighters got some valuable training today during a controlled burn to destroy a dilapidated house on the city’s Southside. Firefighters tested ways to limit fire and studied burn patterns as part of the training. The city codes and fire departments have partnered for years to burn condemned homes as a way to clean up neighborhoods while also keeping firefighting skills sharp.
