EVENTS


Ponderosa Fire, in conjunction with several other departments in the area, conducted a live burn training at an actual house. The owner of the house wanted it removed, so they donated it to the fire department for training. When internal training was complete, the house was allowed to burn to the ground. Fire crews managed the fire in order to protect the nearby trees, power pole, and grassy fields.
