Firefighters fought a controlled house burn Saturday ion Laporte. (Sarah Smith / Enterprise)

Burning down the house

Email

By Sarah Smith / Enterprise - Firefighters from Akeley, Lake George and Laporte, about three dozen, used a dilapidated house in Laporte as their test burn Saturday. Teams of firefuighters from each agency took turns dousing the residential home with hoses, refilling portable tanks on the street and going back in to knock the fire down. The event brought a crowd onto Second Street, especially neighbors, anxious to see what was going on. Parents brought kids, who stared wide-eyed at the sight.
