On Saturday morning members of the Samson Volunteer Fire Department and Samson Volunteer Rescue Squad performed a Live Burn Training on the corner of South Johnson Street and Early Street. Teams of two went inside the house as it was burning and put the fire out. After the teams were done, the Fire Department burnt the house down. The house was reportedly not meeting the Building Code for the City of Samson. One lane of traffic was closed due to the heavy smoke and water being sprayed to keep the fire contained. Samson Fire did a great job at training. I also took a video which is below. I also have pictures, but they will be uploaded one by one. Please allow up to 5 minutes.
