Brooklyn Park fire training exercise goes awry, spreads to nearby homes
June 7, 2017
Two homes in Brooklyn Park suffered minor damage Monday when a fire training exercise went awry.
Firefighters were conducting a training exercise at a home that was slated to be demolished when the wind changed directions and blew heat across the street. The intense heat melted a portion of the siding of two homes, said Brooklyn Park Fire Chief Ken Prillaman.
