Fire department conducts burn

Covington Fire Dept. receives grant for controlled burn

The Covington Fire Department douses the fire ignited in this structure at the Newton College and Career Academy Friday morning, demonstrating how quickly a home without a home sprinkler system or smoke alarm could become engulfed in flames in the event of a fire. The fire department was given a $1,500 grant from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition to demonstrate the importance of installing a sprinkler system. Students from the Career Academy helped build the two structures for the controlled burn. (Staff photo: Jessicah Peters)
