Firemen from Woonsocket, Artesian, Letcher and Mt. Vernon completed their fire school Saturday, a requirement for serving as a volunteer fire and rescue worker.
The trainees spent Saturday going through live drills and ultimately performing a controlled burn on a vacant house in Woonsocket. The house burned was a block west of Lake Prior between Colleen Swenson’s and Marc and Katy Olson’s.
Trainees graduating the school (pictured below, not in order) are: Brandon Goergen, Derek Foos, Garret Foos, Joe Sandness and Neal  Hiemstra of Woonsocket; Darin Amick, Shanna Jensen and Brandon Manchester of Letcher; Mike Kluth and Derek DeVries of Mt. Vernon; and Eric Eckman of Artesian.
