Property owner Trevor Fasching asked the firefighters if they’d be interested in using the house for training, because he is planning to build a new house on the site.

“This will provide the firefighters a great opportunity to learn fire behavior and patterns, as well as firefighting techniques and equipment use,” Winsted Fire Chief Chad Engel noted.
