Fire was ‘controlled’








In photo above, a house at Payne Gap burned as part of a training excercise for the Neon and Jenkins Volunteer Fire Departments recently. A Neon fire department spokesperson said the owners of the home filed paperwork to have the structure torched and the two departments took the opportunity to use the controlled burn as a training excercise.
