Stevens County conducts "structure training" workshop

HUGOTON, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Stevens County Emergency Services department held a "structure training" workshop this Saturday, March 23rd. Members of the department burnt a house completely to the ground and then prevented the fire from spreading. 

Before the house was engulfed in flames, emergency personnel performed a search and rescue mission. 

As the weather gets warmers, wildfires are more likely to spread and workshops like this are useful for training purposes.
