Glasgow Fire Department hosted a relatively rare training opportunity for area firefighters Saturday at the building that had housed Bolton's Landing and other restaurants.
Cave City, East Barren, Park City, East Allen and Alvaton volunteer departments also each had at least one participant, and several personnel from State Fire Rescue Training were involved. A few smaller fires were set for the fire personnel to knock out first; then the flames were allowed to totally engulf the building, and groups practiced using larger hoses.
The new owners of the property, Bill and Janie Logsdon, plan to build a new location for Barren Outdoors on the site and were going to demolish the structure anyway, so Bill Logsdon suggested using it for fire demonstration purposes.
