May 21st Training Burn

Incident Date: May 21st, 2010
Incident Location: 8602 S. Ainsworth Street

Narrative: On Friday, May 21, 2010, the Tacoma Fire Department conducted a training burn at 8602 S. Ainsworth Street.

The property is part of the “From Ashes to Homes” project with the Tacoma-Pierce County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The structure needed to be removed to clear the way for the creation of 11 new homes for hard working low income families. The new neighborhood will include sidewalks, streetlights, and a community area with recreation space.

This all day event was an great opportunity for the Tacoma Fire Department to conduct live fire training in a controlled setting and we were grateful to be able to assist Habitat for Humanity with the development of their very important project.
