Controlled burn planned in Utica

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2015

    You may see smoke or flames in the 200 block of Canal in Utica Saturday morning. Don’t call the fire department on this one. Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown says they’re doing a controll burn of a house at 209 East Canal. The burn event is a controlled exercise for department members and will last about 4 hours.

    There could be a lot of smoke in the area from this training exercise. The Fire District is closing Canal street from the alley behind the bank to Center street during this time. You can watch the training if you like, but, please, keep a safe distance.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
