WRIGHTSTOWN – Usually, the Wrightstown Fire Department doesn’t require an appointment before fighting a fire, but this Saturday, December 9, there will be a scheduled house fire.

Chief Mike Schampers said it will take place on the southeast side of the village, off of County D (Plum Road) south of State 96.

The Wrightstown Fire Department will be conducting a “live burn” training exercise in a home. Several scenarios will be created, one after the other, and then the entire house will be burned down.

“This event will involve multiple local fire departments who will all participate in this training,” Schampers said.

The training will begin around 7 a.m. and should conclude around 2 p.m.

“We would ask there are no ‘spectators’ parked along the roadway causing traffic or access issues to the driveway for the trucks or flow issues of road traffic,” Schampers said.

Police will enforce this.

There are few opportunities for live fire training because of state and federal air quality regulations.
