Practice makes perfect
The old house just west of the Riverside Town and Country Golf Club clubhouse was used for a practice burn on Sunday, Nov. 20. Firefighters from seven area departments (including Mankato) honed their skills in putting out fires as the house was lit on fire seven times and then doused. The eighth time it was allowed to burn to ground. Officers of the golf club say they have wanted to get rid of the house for years. To see more photos, go to cu.faribaultcountyregister.com.
