Firefighters train with live fire

November 6, 2023

Firefighters from Lewes and Milton honed their firefighting skills Nov. 4, with a training exercise hosted by Milton Fire Department Inc. Station 85.

An abandoned home on Front Street near Cave Neck Road was set on fire and used for firefighters to practice various interior firefighting skills and work with the mutual aid departments that typically respond to working incidents, officials said. Lewes members also participated with the burn team, which ensures realistic but safe training fires, and apparatus operators, who maintained an adequate water supply for the day’s training.
