GOLD HILL, Ore.- Today the Rogue River Fire District, Evans Valley Fire District and Ashland Fire and Rescue conducted a live fire training burn to learn.

The structure was donated to Rogue River Fire to be used to conduct multiple live fire exercises. The opportunity was used to re-enforce learned skills and train 3 new hires that started earlier this month.

Firefighters said this also provided an opportunity to work with mutual aid neighbors and learn different tactics from each other.
