Firefighters from 10 area fire departments received hands-on training with a controlled burn of a house at 410 W. 7th St. in Neligh on Sunday.
According to Neligh Fire Chief Mike Mortensen, about eight fire marshals and the Neligh EMTs were also present.
"This is the only time firemen actually get live-burn training," Mortensen said. "The controlled burn provided IC (incident command) training, pumper operations, interior (offensive) and exterior (defensive) operation modes, fire systems and nozzle training and ladder training."
Mortensen said firemen made 72 entries into the house, owned by Harold and Sharon Klein of Neligh.
