Arson training at burned Tucson churchPosted: Updated:
Almost two months ago, Northwest Community Friends Church suffered severe damage due to arson. Thursday Northwest Firefighters used the church as a training ground for its 22-recruits.
Recruits practiced using tools to create verticals vents on the roof and simulated a search and rescue.
"They're getting experience like i said that rarely occurs for a recruit, rarely if ever do recruits actually get chance to come out to a real life fire scene cut through the roof search, bring a wet hose line into a building," says Capt. Adam Goldberg from the Northwest Fire Department.
Recruits will graduate in July. As for the church, work on the building is expected to start in the next several weeks.
