House set ablaze as part of firefighter training exercise

MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

There was a big house fire in Maumee on Saturday but firefighters had it well under control.

The fire was part of a fall training session conducted by the Bowling Green State University Fire School.

The day's lesson was how to extinguish a house fire.

Firefighters from twelve area departments participated in the class.

Instructors tried to emphasize that good decision-making is one of the best tools in firefighting.  

"Critical thinking, thinking on your feet and expanding the knowledge base," said Joe Daniels of the BGSU Fire School.

The training continues on Sunday.

The house will be burned to the ground.
