Controlled Burn

7 am busy at the Stout Fire Hall

a controlled burn of a house is planned

the old house at the front will be burned
the plan is to let it fall in to the basement

It takes a while for the fire to get going
which says something good about how this house was build

Stephen has the job of keeping thing wet at the back 
this wall is supposed to fall down last

The fire fighters from Dike are assisting

after feeding the fire a bit more it is finally burning

The trees are being sprayed and they didn't catch fire

water trucks drove up and down 

All went according to plan
time to take some pictures with dad

The house can continue to burn down to the basement
