Firefighters to train in houses set for demolitionMarch 20, 2017
By The Associated Press
EVANSVILLE — Police and firefighters in Evansville will be allowed to conduct training exercises in land bank-owned houses scheduled for demolition.
WFIE-TV reports that people living near the homes will be notified in advance of the training.
City development director Kelley Coures says the police “SWAT team goes in and does their thing and the fire department can do controlled burns.”
Coures adds that the training will be allowed days or just weeks before the houses are to be torn down.
About 170 blighted houses were razed last year in city neighborhoods, with many done through the Evansville Land Bank.
