News Release
Training Fire To Demolish House in Clark County - 02/28/24

We don’t usually predict house fires, but tomorrow will be an exception in the Lake Shore neighborhood north of Vancouver.

Clark County Fire District 6 will be conducting a training burn at an abandoned house at the corner of 94th Street and 21st Avenue…just south of Columbia River High School.

Training burns serve several important functions.  They help land owners get rid of abandoned, neglected structures and more importantly they provide invaluable experience for firefighters in battling real-life structure fires. 

Firefighters will practice fire extinguishment principles, search and rescue and other vital fire-ground activities.

We will be lighting the structure on fire beginning at 9 a.m. and lasting until the entire house is burned to the ground, likely around 3 p.m.  Training fires also provide excellent opportunities for the media to gather stock house fire footage.  You are invited to attend. The physical address is 2004 NW 94th Street. The most visual footage will likely happen in the afternoon. Please ask for our Safety Officer, Rich Renne.
