Controlled burn scheduled Wednesday on Broad Street


— The Steamboat Springs Fire Department will be conducting a controlled house fire Wednesday evening.

For training purposes, the volunteer department will set the home at 819 Broad St. on fire and then extinguish it, said Jacqui Campbell, a department spokeswoman.

The controlled burn is set for 7 p.m. and will likely last until 10 p.m.

The department planned the controlled burn after three homes on the property were donated to the department for training purposes, Campbell said.

The training operation is subject to weather conditions.

"If there are high winds, we won't do it," Campbell said.
